A beautiful quote here from Alec Soth, talking about the subconscious canonisation of imagery, great piece of evidence that links back to my concept behind The Photograph as Contemporary Art series.
“My head is filled with nuanced cliches – I might subconsciously be influenced by William Egglestone – but she doesn't have that framework. Of course, as a professional, you can't go back to a time when you had none, but you can try. Myself, I long for that quality again." Alec Soth
