‘Building Absence’: Stephen Tourlentes’ prison landscapes

Prof. that is because ,unlike those terribly made mug shots and poorely presented beer bottles, this work has merit and it conveys a story, a theme and the photographer manage to present it on visual media.
there was no need for any explaination in form of behind the scene video, no fancy equipment , and no 1000 word explaination below every pic to understand what it is all about.
may be ,people do enjoy meaninful artistic work, or artistic work with some meaning behind it;-)

other wise,it´s just like those wine tasting gatherings, after the third glass they all taste like Plonk.
