Anselm Kiefer at White Cube, Bermondsey

I hope to go back next weekend as I only had about five minutes in there today but whoa!

UPDATE: 
Went back yesterday and the exhibition was in the process of being dismantled. :(

It seemed to me that everyone who had even the remotest interest in photography cited Adams as a key influence and criticism of him appeared off-limits. During this time I wasn't even sure that photography was an art, and that Adams couldn't be as good as I'd thought because he earned near universal praise for his work (I know, strange distorted thinking, but that's how …
