Some of the elder statesmen of British photography — Bill Jay, Gerry Badger, and Mark Haworth-Booth — are asked to comment in the British Journal of Photography, on Szarkowski’s legacy

Haworth-Booth [says, of the UK] “On contemporary college photography course reading lists, there are many recommended readings on the theoretical approach to photography. Almost completely ignored is the work of John Szarkowski. I find that bizarre. And I find it slightly depressing.”

Worse; I’ve seen his ideas misrepresented and then shabbily ‘dismissed’, in several of the books that are fashionable on reading lists.
