Goethe wrote:

Didnt he get in trouble for staging a photo or something?

He was seen as a photo journalist and a documentary photographer but was discovered to have digitally manipulated a number of his most famous images, undermining their veracity as documents. He no longer calls himself a documentary photographer and instead says he's a visual story teller.

I've never been particularly fond of his work. But he is a highly competent photographer.

Lighting trolls on fire inevitably leads to burning bridges. I'm ok with that.
