Studies of Peeling Hoardings

"Shown here are studies of peeling hoardings which were exhibited in the Modern Art Museum in Munich and at the Photokina in Cologne in 1968....A preoccupation with dreary, peeling poster hoardings, for instance, is clearly an expression of the photographer's legitimate interest in the picturesque decay that trails a consumer civilization."—Willy Rotzler, "The Ephemeral Image: Gene Laurents"
