Is everyone copying each other?, 31 Jan 2013
The book is nicely packaged, but i must say the there is a slight problem with the consistency of the tones of the photographs. Some photographs within the same photographer are more on the green hue while others are neutral and others are slightly warm. This happens across the whole book. May not bother you unless you are a photographer.
On the quality of the work it's peculiar that so many of the photographers in the book -about 80%- seem to be working in a similar fashion or style to the point of making their photographs interchangeable. (Followers of the blurry -grainy and out of focus tradition of Provoke but not so much from a conceptual or philosophical stand, rather they just seems like followers of a photographic look.)
Exceptions are the original and outstanding work by Roger Ballen, Anders Petersen, Scot Sothern, Kim Thue, Chris Rain, Kitajima and Diasuke Yokota
And Im sorry but the work of Sofia Lopez Manan is just a copy of Francesca Woodman....
