References or Copies?

Nothing new under the sun... This happens all the time with art, and with photography especially. Sometimes it's hard to draw the line between intelligently referencing another photographer and either ripping off or unintentionally copying them. I sure hope Noel Camardo was thinking of Daido Moriyama's photograph she made this photo, because I really like both of them. Moriyama's photo is one of those images that produces an uncomfortably visceral reaction in me, and is seared into my memory. Interesting, also, how the similarities highlight the differences.
