I'm taking about the Kodak Moment, diffent from HCB and oppsite of Moriyama.

I’ve bought two photo books at the McNally book shop on Spring Street in SoHo. One is called Failed Images and is about avoiding the dominant approach, which would probably make a lot of heads explode around here, the other is a collection of works by a European journal and school of photographic artists.

For those wishing to explode heads, or who simoly seek out the alternative histories of photography as inspiration for their work, another approach is to look at what is now called found photography. These are, as the name implies, anonymous photographs. A small number of books have been published in recent years. I have two such books and can post their titles next week when I return home and have access to them.
