"I don't think so" = I've got no substantive response.

You ignored my substantive response. I believe the angle precludes it from being him. You disagree. What's more to say?

I see ZERO resemblance between the shot of the girl in the car and the original Brad Pitt and Joaquin Phoenix shots. I see ZERO resemblance in the other shot of the same girl posted in the article either:

Minus the poor image quality, SOOC look, and no quality or directionality of light?

It's a "look" that's very popular in commercial fashion photography, in no small part because of the efforts of this particular photographer. "SOOC" is the photographer's intent.

Popularity is irrelevant to quality. McDonald's burgers.

I certainly don't *know* that they are, I simply suspect. Even if they aren't, these are mediocre images captured by a photographer that doesn't care about photography.

LOL. They are images captured by one of the world's best known fashion and fine art photographers.

A name does not talent make.

Don't confuse Teller's trademark casual look with carelessness. .

Oh, I wasn't. I was simply paraphrasing the shooter's own words about himself. Quoted from the very article you linked to: "I'm not interested in photography, I'm interested in how I can express my ideas and feelings."

He's successfully cultivated that look for many years now to considerable success.

Which is, again, irrelevant to quality.
