    Might offend delicate sensibilities. This amazing photographer has a point of view and doesn't care two hoots about expressing it.

    Wow.... I don't consider myself having a delicate sensibility at all, but the things he says would make sailor blush. Absolutely brutal (and perverse) outlook he has. I almost think he should be locked up.

    He makes me laugh. And leaves me amazed at the same time. I guess he is fighting indifference most of all.

    Pretty funny indeed! I didn't find it offensive, he's just an old man with sex on his mind it seems :tongue:
    I'm gonna do some more thinking on the things he said about the relationship between photographer and subject (but don't worry, I won't suddenly start touching up every woman I take a photo of! :wink: )

    Thanks for posting the link! Haven't read yet, but scanned through the photos and the one of the crack in the pavement is classic.

    Definitely read the article. He has some rather interesting things to say about shooting people.

    One of the most awesome interviews I have ever read, on a couple of levels. Araki and Moriyama are a couple of my favorites.
