  1. Same old tiresome FredG...
     
  2. "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.
     
  3. Ego, Sam.

    None of us are so superior to other folk.

    More important challenges than folks ego.

  5. 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.
     
  6. I think the writings about Eggleston's work is more interesting than the work itself.
     
  7. 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.
