Featured Comments from:
Marcel: "Three out of three! You made your point."
Sean (partial comment): "I got em all right just in the wrong order. I jest."
Mike: And I laughed.
Scott: "1. Um, yes. How could you not. 2. Not familiar with the photographer. I'll fix that soon. 3. Nope. Pictured a Stephen Shore photo instead. Go figure. :-) "
Kristopher Stallworth: "This discussion reminded me of a post from several years ago on Alec Soth's blog about distilling a photographer down to one sentence. He also said he doesn't want to be remembered as 'that guy that took the picture of the cop and the clown.'"
Mike replies: And with his list of example "sentences," I know the photographer he's talking about in every one—Avedon, Arbus, Atget, Loretta Lux, Tina Barney. Goes a long way to proving his point.
Funny, but I wrote an article about a sentence too, around the same time...but a different sentence and a different idea.
