Well yes, and also, quite dull really I'd have thought, from the photographer's point of view? I mean, I know there's soem value in emulating what has gone before as a learning exercise - figuring out HOW the masters did what they did, learning techniques etc. But only if you take that information as a starting point for doing your own thing, not if all you do is endlessly copy someone else. So if a stereotype of a person, place or thing exists, surely the joy is in challenging that? I would have thought.
