Now here is a man you can't ignore. Like so many of the other photographers I am considering I have very mixed feelings about his work, on an intellectual level I understand and even quite approve of some of the concepts he brings to his project but as a practising photographer I am not sure that I can accept his somewhat mechanical view of the process to the extent that he is quite happy to include photographs taken by other people or sourced from libraries in his output.
