    I like what he says more than I like his work. Most of it doesn't work for me, but then again I prefer faces so I may be to one side on this.

    I went to Sweet's Flickr site. I like that much better. I'm still not as fond of the human fragment shots as I am of the others. Some are very good, but a lower percentage of keepers for me. It is a fascinating style, however.

    I loved the pictures. Eliciting a response from the audience is so much easier if they have a human face to visually latch onto. His way is that much more difficult. Really enjoyed going through the images he made and hope to see more. Nice interview too. Good going man!

    you should be able to figure it out...
    I like it quite a bit, but maybe not a steady diet of "fragments" - his flickr stream has more of a mix of fragments and faces and it makes for a really nice body of work. Good eye for mixing people with composition too, which I just never seem to get - its one or the other...

    Not my kind of photography, but, You can learn from everybody. Some good "nuggets" scattered throughout. Reading this has just been another Gas-x, for my rapidly dissipating GAS.
