Currently reading up on the "discovered" Ansel Adams negatives debacle from earlier this year.
Actually scrub that, I am in the process of tidying up loose ends here at work, when I 're-discovered' A.D. Coleman's blog, Photocritic International. He writes extensively about the issue and I'm only 1/8 the way though his writings on the matter. This quote however had me guffawing out loudly, at last some one has the balls to say it.The recent Polaroid Collection auction at Sotheby's in New York, in which some 400 Adams pieces went on the block, demonstrated that there's an insatiable appetite for Adams prints, but a few dozen "new" Adams images from his early days won't force any serious reconsideration of his already exhaustively over-considered and vastly overestimated oeuvre. The thought of yet another Adams book and show makes me cringe reflexively.
I am pleased to hear someone articulate, what many have refused to say out loud for such a long time.
