Dear Mike, Fails for me on composition, not pose. It's akin to August Sander's work, which was variable, but at its best, very good. As this could have been. There's a certain taxonomic or "Neue Sachlichkeit" quality that I like (Google both Sander and Neue Sachlichkeit if you're not familiar with 'em); but there's too much background and not enough people. Cheers, R.
