Yeah, that surprised me. I've never heard of his films before. I'll have to keep an eye out for them.

Any Guy Bourdin on board? He's recently re-entered my radar and would be a wonderful contrast to the recent influx of B&W photos.

Loving the recent selection, however. :up:

Man, this excerpt from the interview especially:
How are the working-class situations you photograph today different from the ones you portrayed fifty years ago?
One main difference is people are not as “recognizable”. I used to be able to photograph FIAT workers in their coveralls, with the carmaker’s brand on them; priests wore hats and cassocks; lawyers had specific jackets and ties. Photographs could describe the social status of the moment, place, and person. Today, everyone wears the same clothes. If you go take photos of a pilgrimage in Lourdes, you then have to write captions that sound something like, “The priest is the third from the left, in the pink shirt”. Society has uniformed so much that images today require a commentary, while in the past photographs could tell a story even without words. Images were a description in their own right, they were documents. In the porticoes along the river Po, the men wearing black capes conveyed a clear meaning – simply because they could not be found in Rome, Venice, or anywhere else.

So is it safe to say that you like the past better than the present?
No, not at all. I like to walk around Piazza Duomo when it is flooded with the colors and lights of contemporaneity. The world goes on, at its own pace, that that is just fine. But you asked me about the differences between what I could observe fifty years ago and what I see today, and I cannot help but mention the widespread indistinctness, the general loss of aesthetic personality, and the way highly symbolic moments have vanished. You could once recognize priests and housekeepers, lawyers and workers; now a homogenous and shapeless mass flows past, and it’s hard to tell its story. That’s all.
