Just in this discussion others have chosen to post: hectoring questions, supportive comments, comedic asides, personal anecdotes, ...

As you say -- As Casey said, "You could look it up."

Well, I agree that's a lot of fun and I enjoy it too, but this forum is supposed to be about photographs.

This forum is supposed to be about -- "opinions on photography as an art form".

Do your descriptions of cameras and lenses and shoulder straps express an opinion on photography as an art form?
Do they say anything about Gursky's photography?

Physician, heal thyself;

In retrospect, only Ray seems to have had an informed opinion about Rhein II.

No.

Have you ever actually seen the work yourself ? or any original Gursky prints ?

No, I haven't seen Rhein II.

Ray deserves more than your one word dismissal ;-)

Maybe instead of making one line comments and quoting others, you should make the effort to see the work yourself so you could offer your own informed opinion.

The one word dismissal was aimed at you because other comments here have expressed informed opinion.

to see the work yourself

Seems that the Tate owns one, and MOMA owns one -- where are the other 4?

I'd already dismissed my opinion about Rhein II when I put only Ray in bold :-)

Please do link to those other "informed" opinions.

So you haven't actually seen a Gursky original print at all then ?

At least my comment #45 is based on having seen the work (and other Gursky originals)

Asked and answered.
Actually you haven't answered, because I asked if you'd seen any Gursky original, not just RheinII, but I assume your answer will still be no.

You need to see an original to get any sort of understanding of his work.

I asked where are the other 4 prints of Rhein II, so people could follow your injunction to see the work themselves.

From there you jumped to the conclusion that I haven't seen any Gursky original -- your reasoning is broken, and as a matter of fact wrong.

When you fail to answer......

So which Gursky originals have you seen and what did you think of them ? Did you see them before you knew of their valuations ? if so did seeing the originals change your view of their worth ?

So this is what you mean by " hectoring questions, supportive comments, comedic asides, personal anecdotes." I'd say the activities pretty much end after the first one.

Nothing there that expresses an opinion on photography as an art form.
Nothing there that says anything about Gursky's photography.

Russ, what you said cannot be true -- my words, which you quote, contain no questions.
