Harvey Benge
A Short History of Photography
HC, 26 x 21 cm., o.pp.
DewiLewis 2007

"Harvey Benge´s work here is a meditation on photographic style. While looking through his contact sheets, he noticed that one of his pictures reminded him of a "Friedlander", while another reminded him of someone else. All photographers do this, and if the photograph in question apes the another photographer too closely, it´s usually a cause for rejection." Badger -
A commentary on Adams, Baltz, Baldessari, Barney, etc. etc.
