In this corner …

… A great ad for the optical benefits of rehab: the Elton John Collection reviewed. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

Two of the greatest talents of photographic realism — Walker Evans and Robert Frank — are also here and there’s a curiously thrilling picture of that great dandy realist Henri Cartier-Bresson with his wife Ratna Mohini in 1936. The show is actually about modernism versus realism and this picture seems to hint that, in photography at least, realism will win.
