Why more Bill Owens? Because his work is simply too good to resist. Owens’ colour photographs are rich in clarity and exposition. Whether he is pointing out a bigger picture or not can always be discussed, but what first hits the viewer is the image itself. The smoothness of the cheese in a burger (and how the lettuce matches the salt and pepper shakers), the uniformity and individuality of an army of lingerie mannequins, the what-you-see-is-what-you-get aspect of good ol’ American cooking – you want to get right into the picture. The photos here are all from the America gallery, but be sure to check out Travel and Food, too.
