Bertrand’s work is very interesting. And fun to look at. I do wonder about using these images of popular/cultural figures. I’ve used them myself. Their iconic quality allows one to investigate ideas or images that wouldn’t necessarily work if one were using private individuals. But the impression may seem like parody or satire. I find myself using Hitler, Monroe, and Einstein in all kinds of circumstances. Maybe its laziness.
(I must avoid the word ‘just’.)
