Twitter Capsule: A curious passion, rigorously photographed. Most affecting when least prescriptive about how it's provoking its audience.

VOR:   Many people have cited this as their favorite Dumont. I'm ambivalent about its more overt claim for topicality. More coherent, less insolent than some of his others, for better and worse.
