Same old tiresome FredG...
"You accused those who write about art of having a misplaced ego" Sam.
Err no, although some who chase the coin. But they are not the Artist a important distinction.
"I’m not your mate, never have been, never will be." Sam
You do have to be my mate, for me to be your mate. Like to think its a free world, to be someone's mate, even if they don't want me to be their mate.
" You haven’t challenged me" Sam.
Okay. Be happy.
None of us are so superior to other folk.
" You haven’t challenged me" Sam."
More important challenges than folks ego.
Reminds me of the Donna Reed like TV-mom who, when her son would get in trouble, called him Jeffrey instead of Jeff. Only Donna Reed had class. And FredG is not a very effective outing, at this point, and outing has never been a very effective tactic anyway.
I think the writings about Eggleston's work is more interesting than the work itself.
lol, I don’t. But your position is certainly valid and appreciated.
Maybe there’s something to it in that interesting or not interesting is probably not the best adjective to capture Eggleston’s work.
If I were to choose one word for Eggleston, it might be observant. Two words might be peculiarly observant. Three, peculiarly, colorfully observant.
If I were to sum it up with an oxymoron, which I think is appropriate, I might say Eggleston’s photos are earnestly droll.
