Re: Martin Parr
Thanks, Judy, for the heads up on Martin Parr. I think he is fast becoming my fave, too. What a sense of vernacular humor!
I am spending several hours at a time combing through the library TR section, paging through each book, and marking it yea or nay on my list that is now down to 2300 from 3700. I have come across some wonderful books that apply to alt, so I am revising my list to NOT be the top 100 (or 500) books, but dividing it into categories of alt, doc, experimental, digital, etc. so I think the alt list of books will be quite helpful, esp since a lot of the books are not alt per se but have lots of examples in them (esp the history ones).
The benefit is I have come across some real winners.
Question--anyone into photography in the 60's or 70's who might know if Benno Friedman did gum on a regular basis?
