I don't buy it. I think he's rubbish. It's possible to have background items softly out of focus and still maintain context as well as sharpness for all people.

Jonathan Jones is an art critic , (the Guardian's chief art critic, in fact) not a photographer. Why would he have a chip on his shoulder?

That said........ he does seem to have some oddly contrary views about photography generally, as you will see in the Wiki entry I've linked to!

Here's another article about his views on photography.

I don`t think he`s one bit interested in EPZ likes or votes Smile

He could have gone for a blurred background or he could have hung a wad of material but instead went for an environmental portrait type setting and there is nothing wrong with this.

He obviously had a remit, and those who commissioned and paid for the images would have had the final say, so what anyone else thinks is, at the end of the day, irrelevant.
