One of my fave photographic genres which is much overlooked. Maximalism.

Glad you posted in this forum because I never would have seen it in the B&W forum. It's a fabulous image.

Your comment about Maximalism made me think about an article I read on Ming Thein's website a few years ago. He talked about concept called Wimmelbild, which he describes as "the concept of ‘teeming pictures’ – or a composition that is extremely full of detail and sub-scenes within the main composition." You are not pushing it as far as he does, but you still might find it an interesting read: https://blog.mingthein.com/2016/06/24/wimmelbild-im-fotografie/

I've had a good look through Ming's site, he's a talented chap. I was flicking through thinking he's a good allrounder, but what's his speciality, then saw his rock solid studio work. Of all his work, i'd say his wimmelbild collection is his weakest, I was a bit disappointed with the article. Then again, he'd set his standards so high as I looked through his entire portfolio before reading it. Worth reading and the responses are good.

Thanks again for the link, well worth seeing.
