I never liked “dirty”, “over-spicy”, too much unnecessary details, very soft focus, “fat salad with too much ingredients”, “shouty”, “ink-spots” style of photography. It does not matter if it’s a black&white or a colour photo, you can see high saturation and cross-processing in both. In my mind most Helmut Newton’s photos fall in this category.
However, even in this loud cacophony you can catch a fine tune or a conversation you are interested in. I wonder if the purpose of “this style” is to make the viewer look for something. Probably for what is being advertised? I always look for fetish triggers anyway 😀
