I was interested in Charlotte Oestervang’s work and how different it can be. The Appalachian work seems very much the work of Diane Arbus. I much prefer the series she did on Kashmir.
I absolutely agree C, the Kashmir images are very original whereas the Appalachia are just copies of all the old FSA stuff.
That’s the problem with documentary trying to find an original way of telling a story through images which transmit your feelings and emotions without falling into the trap of repetition.
