The images I wish I had made
I really enjoy the photographs you find and post to this blog, Levi.Misrach is one of the greats. I think his work influences a lot of fine-art photographers in this particular genre today, whether they know it or not. I have to say I'm disappointed with his latest endeavors - the whole positive to negative effect - but his work from the Salton Sea and Bonneville Salt Flats is truly inspiring.I remember coming across J Bennett Fitts' photograph of the same pool shortly after I had taken almost the exact same image - an experience that has happened to me a few times with other photographer's work. I'm a huge fan of Fitts' work, especially his Golf series.
Thanks Stephen. I think it's been a really beneficial experience for me to edit through and post what I've collected. I've got lots more to come as well, and I continue to find more all the time, like your own work.I think it's an interesting time to work in photography because the Internet enables an exposure to so much work that 20 years ago would have required spending a lot of money on books to see (unless one had a really decent library in their city, but even then...).Yeah, I'm not as interested at the moment in Misrach's latest work either, but I do really like his other work from what I've seen. I should really buy one of his books.
