Tasteless (but funny)!




I wouldn't call this tasteful, but it's so well done and so inside art that when critic Charlie Finch passed it on to me, I felt it was worth sharing.

For those not in the loop, this parody deals with the surprising news last month that in a move masterminded by L. A. philanthropist Eli Broad, Jeffrey Deitch, the flamboyant super-trendy New York dealer, had been appointed as the new director of the Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art and was closing his galleries. Many candidates fort he job were disappointed ....

Hi James,

I've been an avid follower of your blog since 2007, thanks for such a great range of photography and critique!

Couldn't find your email addy, just wanted to share this pic with you.

I took it back in 2007 while on assignment in Bangladesh, after the country was hot by Cyclone Sidr.

Been moving house this week and decided to make a copy on large canvas, since it has been so influential in my life these last 3 years.

Thanks again for a wonderful blog.

Thank you so much for your blog. I know it must be hard to do a new post every day, but I miss it.
Re: today's post, I assume you have not seen this one, or any of the many other similar Youtube videos of Hitler after the ipad announcement:
