Two recent submissions by Detroit-area based photographer Richard Sudney, (top image), and Ted Van Orman (bottom image), are not related visually by any means, however their visual simplicity and cleanliness reminds me of the other. I also find it interesting that they could be considered to be "eye candy", a title that for me never depletes the work if it is a quality image to begin with. Photographs mustn't be loaded down with overbearing concept all of the time. However this debate / issue is one of the frequent points brought up in the "Is Photography Art?" argument. Over at Detroit Arts, there is a somewhat funny argument going on over John Cynar's work @ Motor City, with discussion of said issue.
