Well, you don't have to name your art or photographs, you don't even have to explain them to anyone if you don't want to. The photographs should speak for themselves or be open to subjective experience :-) I actually like the fact he is not arty-farty about his work and that he just makes the images because something in the scene attracts him to it.
I suppose the value in his work is due to the fact that he is regarded as one of the early pioneers of colour photography and that everything changed when people began to regard colour photography as much as an art form as black and white.
