A couple of years ago, a photographic print by Andeas Gursky called "Rhein II"
was sold for $4.3 million. Many of the message boards I was subscribing to rapidly filled up with incredulous comments decrying this and finding no worth in the image.
I actually like it a lot, but then again, I think I have a greater sympathy for modern art than that shown by some photographers I have encountered. These people tend to be concerned with technique and equipment, often showing a fondness for high dynamic range imaging (HDR) and overly rich color saturation. Alright in its place, I say, but look beyond.
Gursky was unafraid to clean his image of walkers and a factory building. So I'll remove the trees and create my own "Chain Of Rocks I".
