The bit that sticks in my mind is the 'many subjects which are avoided because we all need that echo of familiarity'... huh? I'd think only a taboo or plain bad taste is avoided (in general).
I think the content is in an iframe with javacscript so that's why it can't been copied or pasted. The point I think he is making is that we are becoming too obvious and boring in our work. I know he raves over some Argentinian photographers and thinks their work is more visually exciting than the work that come's out of UK uni's at the moment.
