I really like to discover the influence of artists among other artists. It is sort of an excercise of knowledge, and a curiosity to find. You can see how a point of view is taken, analyzed and interpreted in order to show another point of view..... all that is fine.
However, it really pisses me off to find vile copies of works. Specially good works done by great artists, and then someone else comes and makes exactly the same stuff without any shame of calling it their creation.
Like in this two images. The first one done years ago by Juergen Teller, controversial fashion photographer and leading character in shaping our understanding of fashion photography.
And then comes this photographer called Viktor Vauthier and makes exactly the same image.......
Doesn´t it piss you off as well???
