    I had the chance to attend to the LA exhibit but i was flying back to NZ that day so i didnt go. (Yes i know), about a week i received the physical book, Genesis. Theres no words to describe how S T U N N I N G the book and images are. simply a must. If you like documentary-travel photography.

    thanks for sharing!

    Thanks for the heads-up. He has a true eye for composition lines. Amazing. Some photos are a bit too dynamic for my taste but especially the elephant and eskimo shot are spectacular.
    Too bad the exhibition runs until 8 sept. I will be in London 2weeks later.

    Love this - agree with Pniev
    bit surprised at the fuzziness of the penguins - but I do like it

    I know I'm against the tide here, but I have never been able to raise any enthusiasm for his work; I waver between a sort of attentive disinterest and feeling it's all a bit jarring.

    but then chacun à son goût
