26 Gasoline Stations....ZZZZZZZZZ

I came across Eric Tabuchi's homage to Ed Ruscha's Twenty Six Gasoline Stations on Lens Culture here. To be brutally honest I think this is a truly bad modern day attempt at such a well known body of work (Ed Ruscha's 26 gasoline stations first published in 1962 I believe, and its brilliant). What makes things slightly more odd is that Tabuchi has a remarkable body of work on his website, my favorite being the Road Signs series which is really worth checking out.

If you are going to pay homage to anyone, it better be good, as good, or better. These are just dull and there is nothing more I can add..
