    Reminds me of Eggleston. But with more of a classical sensibility, and B+W.

    Thanks for this introduction to Allen Ruppersburg.

    I am reminded of Araki’s Tokyo Erotomania Diary and other fake-journals, minus the nude bodies and Ero’s.

    Naturally the narrative sequencing and juxtaposition of images is key in this strategy (as with any photobook).

    The Japanese tradition goes right back to the handscroll, screens, and multiple perspective landscape’s.

    Araki said he was inspired by Italian Neorealist films by Roberto Rossellini and Vittorio de Sica.

    Oh No! Own Goal. I see what you mean but… seduction, aura and LBM’s.
