Absolutely right! I loved seeing Tichy's photographs at the ICP -- they are extraordinary, regardless of the impulse that created them -- and thought the pompous, disingenuous commentary in the show was hilarious. The frustating thing is that the ICP missed an opportunity to ask a rather profound question. If you accept that Tichy created these images as a homemade, purpose-built porn stash (and there's no doubt in my mind that he did), then the real question is: How different is that than what ANY artist does?

Well said! As someone who has worked on the periphery of the art world for a number of years, this tendency to indiscriminately invest vernacular photography, or folk art - or whatever - with some higher-key, academic motivation is forever maddening.

Emile

Absolutely right on. The BS level by art theorists on this guy is excruciating. I don't think those writers would recognize a genuine human impulse if it bit them in the ass.

I'm looking forward to finally seeing this show this week. Thanks for the illuminating article-- I think that the work has cred as being 'authentic' and it is appropriated by the academic theorists as it offers a raw ingenuousness that more self-conscious and 'artful' photography lacks- but often tries to emulate. I love the phrase from Jack above--'homemade all-purpose porn stash' !!!! I want one of my own!
