    $300M is going to buy some really good lawyers.

    I like Missy Suicide's response. Maybe photographers should start doing that with all his "art". The problem is, he's already achieved the position of someone whose "art" people are willing to pay silly money for. I love how people will pay large sums for something if a contemporary societal commentary is given as the reason for the art. Mind you, I've long held the belief that photographers make up far more interesting stories around their pictures than was the reality.

    I reckon he's onto something that we can all do....lol. I'd be down at his gallery every day with my Android phone snapping "his" art for myself.

    No mater what, he is still a non-entity. (Other epithets like "piece of dirt" and many more spring to mind.)

    His followers/clients/suckers are mindless indiscriminants.

    Nuff's head.
    CC, Image editing OK.

    Very interesting article.

    Unbelieveable - both what he does and that people pay such ridiculous prices for it.

    Tend to agree. If I was the artists he was stealing from, I would be more than just a little annoyed.

    I'd take a photo of his photo and include a hand with the middle finger raised.
    Fuji XT-2, Fuji X-E3, Fuji X100T, Fuji VPB-XT2, Fujinon 16-55 f/2.8, Fujinon 50-140 f/2.8, Fujinon 35 f2, Fujinon 90 f/2, Fujinon 60 f/2.4 Macro, Yongnuo YN560 IV, Yongnuo YN560 TX, Benro C3580T, Mefoto Q00
