    "Hogwash" "Beautiful Camera"

    BUT, how about his photography? If you like his stuff, why? If not, why not?

    I've never been a fan, but good on him for being able to do what he does.

    He travels with a crew, including a PR person. You must have seen enough of that to be skeptical. Little happens for the lonely photographer doing his thing without an audience.
    So I call hogwash. Again.

    He is not looking healthy. But he is wealthy. Most prob. is working too much. A photographer-friend with studio just died at age of 73 only. Could not stop working.

    As with the Alec Soth thread, I have to admit my ignorance of Jeff Wall stuff until now. I have seen a couple of his pieces before but did not realize it they come from a "famous photographer". His are Conceptual Arts, so I suppose he could have painted the scenes, if he is a painter, but as a photographer, he has to construct the scenes. So he is commercially successful and thus has a team of people working for him, but I don't see anything wrong with that. I mean, if landscape photogs can afford it, I am sure we would like someone else to carry that 30-50 lbs pack.

    Will look at his images more and meditate of them.

    Good thought. I will give photo-credit to the mule next time.
