I particularly appreciate the consistently interesting wide angle perspectives.

Lovely vision.

Grand stuff, Mike. The guy's really good. One was pretty derivative, though. The two kids walking toward the light in Home IV are a direct steal from Gene Smith's "The Walk to Paradise Garden." The correspondence is too close for me to believe it's accidental.

That was the single thing that impressed me.

Gene Smith's "The Walk to Paradise Garden" is derivative of 19th century Barbizon Painting and quite a bit of Dutch Painting as well. All of art is based on something that someone else has touched upon, whether we are aware of that fact or not. Somebody somewhere always knows.

Right, Peter, Everything is derivative of everything else, and, as Picasso said, ""bad artists copy, great artists steal." But this is a particularly egregious theft. It's almost point for point. If you know Gene Smith's work you can't miss it.

AS you say ALMOST, hence it too is derivative. Also Picasso was the world's greatest visual thief of all time and very proud of it.

Well, I don't think Eskildsen was trying to catch up to Pablo. That one picture was the only direct steal I saw, though my knowledge of the history of photography probably is short of what's needed to identify all thefts.

That actually goes back to W.H. Davenport Adams, circa 1892: “That great poets imitate and improve, whereas small ones steal and spoil.”

Yes, a big thank you for sharing the link. I very much enjoyed the work, and it's particularly nice when you see a photographer with a sense of narrative combined with their own style.

"I wonder if he's shooting Canon or Nikon? How many megapixels?", said no one, ever.  ;)
