Gursky's influences

Seen above is Goya's bull fighting series and Manet's studys of the execution of Maximilian of Mexico. Direct influences of Gursky in terms of repetition and of composition. Deep thought had gone into what Goya and Manet were capturing and it is now evident that deep thought is also involved with Andreas Gursky, something i now very much appreciate about Gursky's photography.
