Given that he died just before Christmas, December 2008, I find it surprising – a bit shocking even – that there was little else about him in the magazine. The fact that I am writing this here, in a photography context, about one of the most important British and international conceptual artists of his generation indicates both the shift he made in his own career and to the blind-spots that still exist in contemporary art towards history and photography.
