Josef Koudelka: This Photo is Blowing My Mind

Last night we attended the Alessandra Sanguinetti artist talk at Aperture Gallery. Alessandra is very smart in how she approaches, executes and talks about her work and I took away a lot from the evening.

While at Aperture I leafed through a copy of their new Josef Koudelka career-spanning book, Koudelka. How could one person have taken so many iconic images? It is all so good it almost makes me want to throw in the towel. I mean, how do you aspire to be a great cello player after hearing Pablo Casals play Bach's Suites for Cello? And how do you aspire to take amazing pictures after Mr. Koudelka has given the world The Hound?
