Eh I'm willing to bet many really popular photos can be linked back to examples done by other popular photographers. I don't see much he's used the same themes, some better some worse than the originals but some are also such common image themes (kissing lips) that I'm sure its been done by dozens of photographers over the years without any specific overt desire to repeat the shot done by another.
I don't see any wrong and I don't see any right its just a thing that happens in the world. We can demand that our creative inspirations and celebrities create totally unique things; but hte truth is often that what sells and what is popular is often partly what has gone before. So in part you can blame people for the fact that the same themes and concepts rise to the top of the popularity scale.
I disagree, cherylynne1, but I'll spare you the big red "X".So yes, I believe he didn't deliberately copy anyone else's work.
Sorry, but I'm going to disagree with you as well. Some of them could be coincidence, sure, but others, like the three tongues? The chances of that are beyond calculation! He's a lucky hack who came up with a good idea and is making a fortune off of the backs of others....So yes, I believe he didn't deliberately copy anyone else's work. However, I still believe he's at fault for not knowing what other famous photographers are doing.
