If you have experienced Gursky's HUGE unbelievably detailed prints first hand you need to. And I saw an exhibit of Sherman's at the Museum of Contemporary Art here in Chicago a couple of years back and her work is very interesting. My personal tastes tend to run more along the lines of Bresson, Winogrand, Robert Frank, Ralph Gibson, Harry Callahan, Joel Meyerowitz....

I'm thinking Gursky probably makes much more of an impression seeing the full size image rather than a tiny representation on the Web.


Some Canon stuff and a little bit of Yongnuo.

I think it's the same with Peter Lik's works. Seeing his prints in a gallery gives you a very different impression than seeing them on a comp screen.


Not sure why, but call me JJ.
I used to hate math but then I realised decimals have a point.

His work kinda reminds me of Kinkade. Not real deep...

When I'd been recording found scenes for a while and posting them to Urban Fragments, someone in real life told an anecdote about Stephen Shore. I went to Shore's website, which has a gallery. Some of my images look a little like some of his. So I think Stephen Shore should be mentioned. :D

Yes Steven Shores work is also very solid.

You should also check out Ralph Gibson's work. I know B&W but the way he uses negative space. In fact some of his work is really about the shapes in the negative space.

Thanks for sharing that, Allen.

I just checked out one of his online galleries, and it features some really great work. I'd like to comment on some of those images, but I'm afraid that would be way too off topic here. Maybe you could introduce Ralph's work to us in the Composition . . . Arty Stuff thread.

Here's the gallery I was looking at (and enjoying immensely):

"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".

Tom,
Yeah Gibson is an amazing artist. He was late to go digital. Within the past couple of years and it was a Leica M Monochrom that finally did it for him...

He worked for Dorothea Lange (she made the famous photo Migrant Mother in 1936)

for a couple of years after getting out of the Navy in the early 1960s IIRC

I haven't read this whole thread, but I did one time pay $20 for a print of a of a painting by Salvador Dali and had it hanging for many years :)

Going through a photography concepts class, I sure studied many photos that were considered "art"- many of which I completely disagreed with. However, somebody somewhere thinks it's good enough to lay down cash for it.-?
