People are amazing. Courtesy of the Gautam Rajadhyaksha fan page on Facebook, we have just heard that amateur photographers, hoping to rise up in the biz, have been using photographs taken by the late great Gautam Rajadhyaksha and posting it as their own work. The malice and... genuine stupidity involved is shocking... and risible. And all too visible; the fools will be caught as though the great one may no longer be with us, his fans are very much so - and all too willing to protest against this level of cheat.
Just look at the example of a very simple portrait of Sridevi, taken by Gautam da, in its simplicity is its beauty. Many have imitated, few have succeeded in recreating that magic he had.
