Miguel Rio Branco, 1984

John Sevigny presents an impassioned argument for photographer Miguel Rio Branco’s stunning color work while questioning the chops of contemporary color’s best known practitioners. It is a provocative read even if his blood-red assault seems fired from the gun turrets of black and white photojournalism and 20th Century photo history. I agree with what he is saying and I agree with what he is arguing against. That’s what I love about photography, it is not bound by thought. Check out Guernica Magazine for the complete article. Thanks to Guernica for publishing a free thinker like John.
