Some interesting photographs, and some odd tones.

The section of sculpture images was particularly poignant, some as if “alive again”.

The Moroccan Abodes just confirm my positive thoughts on images in series.

That's why I preferred calendars to fashion at that time. It helped that the fashion just dried up.

It was what attracted me to go back several times to that disused power station, too. Especially when I hit upon that French Braquo series and its graphic titles. Just felt something good to pursue.

In the girl's work, the Moroccan thing also grabbed me. Made me think of Rick Stein's trip through Baja California, where he was on Friday night on BBC2. Not that it looked that primitive, but that peninsula has been in my imagination for decades... never got there, unfortunately, and now it's too late.

Good find. Just goes to show, there are hundreds, perhaps thousands of really fine photographers all over the world. I particularly like liquida and the silent bystanders. The dark, dark statue with really harsh light stands out for me.
