Richard Prince

Richard Prince started off a painter but switched to photography  in the seventies to great acclaim. His work includes collage, re-photography and is deemed appropriation art. I think its amazing, humorous, cool, seedy and interesting and in terms of style perfectly expresses the mass consumer, mass media era we live in. it comes as no surprise that he owns the original manuscript for William Burroughs “Naked Lunch.” Clear influences of the cut up technique developed by Burroughs pervade his works.
