Good question Claes! I have missed that photo so thanks for pointing at it.
I agree it does have some AA vibes, perhaps due to the kind of black and white treatment that Jonathan has used? Which is to say, lots of middle greys and not a harsh black/white treatment that is probably more common in digital black and whites? (I know this was a scan of a real bw negatives, but others have played with it and increased the contrast making it a bit less Ansel-esque for me).
It also reminds me of something I was thinking a couple of weeks ago, when I was browsing my copy of The New West by Robert Adams; this is another kind of bw photography that is utterly alien to me – primarily for the kind of subject matter (those empty, almost barren natural spaces with signs of human artifacts, are not to be found in Italy) but also for the way these spaces are represented with very flat greys.
