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

Asked and answered.


At least my comment...

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.

This thread reminds me of when tried to pull a stick out of a girlfriend's dog's mouth.  I pulled and he clamped down and resisted.  I'd pull harder, he'd clamp down and pull back harder, I'd lighten up, he'd relax. So we're standing there each pulling on the stick, and I looked into his eyes and there was absolutely no one at home.

Back to topic, although IMO anyone who pays $4 million for a contemporary photograph has more money than sense, I expect the Gurskys are very impressive seen in person.  I understand that Eli Broad is quite a Gursky collector, so I am hoping there will a few on display at the Broad Museum when it opens next year.

When you fail to answer...

When I fail to answer, you are not compelled to make up answers.

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 ?

Hong Kong Stock Exchange, don't remember, don't remember, don't remember (but my usual view is that a thing is worth what someone will pay).

You didn't offer your answers to those questions -- and that's OK.

Not compelled, no, but no answer is often answer enough.

Don't remember
You saw a photo six feet high and over fourteen feet wide by one the world's most famous photographers and you can't remember what you thought of it.

Your mistaken assumptions are just that -- yours.

You asked them. I thought they might be questions that genuinely interested you.

You already covered the obvious answer to what everyone thinks when they see a photo six feet high and over fourteen feet wide :-)

I guess you aren't going to say anything about globalization.

No Back to topic fig leaf ?

Credit where it's due, only Ray seems to have had an informed opinion about Rhein II.

We used to have a dog - an alsabrador - and about twenty-five or so cats all at the same time.

I used to play with the pooch on the beach; she'd pick up amazingly large branches and run with them, head up high.

I'd catch one end, start to swing, and within seconds she's be hanging on in space, going round and round as I spun. I can tell you: those eyes were never empty. You could read them, never more so than on the stormy morning that she died, across my knees on the cold kitchen floor after the vet gave her her last jab. Moments before she'd been standing stock still, head hanging, as my wife tried to speak to her as the vet got ready. She offered my wife her paw... None of us had empty eyes.

The cats? They were like their bigger cousins: inscrutable. Even with a pigeon under one paw.

Such 'art' was never intended for mere mortals; maybe we should just smile and forget it; better still, provide it!
