John Divola jumping

I only joined instagram six months ago to follow John Divola. He's a long-time, well respected name in art photography but his seeming failure to make it to the really big bucks top tier of the likes of Cindy Sherman and Jeff Wall may be down to the fact that however hybrid his practice it usually looks a bit cheap and cheerful rather than high-art collectable. To me that makes it far, far more engaging.

Mack First Book Award 2020 shortlist

Obviously there must have been a mix up as my 432 page book of photographs of hedgerows failed to make the Mack First Book Award 2020 shortlist.
