If that's you endorsing that opinion, ABERS, I'll have to agree to disagree.... but I think you're of the same view as me..... 'Emperor's New Clothes'.
I know many people think the sun shines out of his, er, aperture. I don't.... though, strangely enough, I like the work of Martin Parr (even though Parr's work doesn't yet have that extra 'patina' that old pictures seem to gain....a.k.a. 'nostalgia').
Walker Evans is another I just 'don't get'.... along with several other post-war photographers who were given gallery space in New York.... I think the 'scene' in NY at the time just wanted to move on quickly from pictorialism.
