Laurie Lipton’s work is an assault on conventional sensibilities. Wonderfully crafted, this Brueghelish look at the modern world will no doubt enlist a following from the comic book generation. But to an older generation her work is an attack. As if we were thrown back into the industrial revolution and forced to relive the days of plaque, the Ripper, and the Light Brigade.(Her personal sight is very slow to respond so you may have more luck goggling her name.)

The 60s. Lots of fun. Bob Dylan. The Beatles. The assassination of Kennedy. They were our youth so we have a slanted view of its importance. And one of the people who chronicled those times was a photographer known as Duffy.

Duffy reminds me of the photographer in the Antonioni film “Blow-Up”.
