The Webbs Visit Rochester

I have to say that I find this project by Alex Webb and Rebecca Norris Webb on Rochester banal beyond belief. The repeated 'reflected in glass' images (is there a technical term for that sophomoric approach?) is just stupefying. Is it supposed to convey depth? Why is it that photographers seem to be wholly unable to approach the city in a direct, sensible way? Here they are at The New York Times and here they are at TIME. This makes me long for the Pellegrin fiasco!
P.S.: (6/25/2014) And here they are at The Guardian. Slow news day?
