Response to 15 Of The Most Expensive Pictures In The World:
I see the point in old photos, or Weston’s amazing visual research in the Twenties with limited equipment, or Mapplethorpe’s formal perfection; but Cindy Sherman? Just hype.
How much is Ansel Adams’ amazing b/w work worth? Or the contemporary satire of Martin Parr? Sherman innovates nothing, makes no social point, and just cashes in the money for reasons I cannot fathom.
Yuck. Even the sushi had transmogrified into something sticky, oily and unedible. What kind of people really likes this stuff?! If I wanted to become obese, I’d do it by eating amazing, lovely gourmet food. At least I would get pleasure out of the experience….
