Example Response

<photos page="2" has_next_page="1" perpage="10">
  <photo id="2636" owner="47058503995@N01" secret="a123456" server="2" title="test_04" ispublic="1" isfriend="0" isfamily="0" />
  <photo id="2635" owner="47058503995@N01" secret="b123456" server="2" title="test_03" ispublic="0" isfriend="1" isfamily="1" />
  <photo id="2633" owner="47058503995@N01" secret="c123456" server="2" title="test_01" ispublic="1" isfriend="0" isfamily="0" />
  <photo id="2610" owner="12037949754@N01" secret="d123456" server="2" title="00_tall" ispublic="1" isfriend="0" isfamily="0" />

This method returns a variant of the standard photo list xml.

For queries about a member other than the currently authenticated one, pagination data ("total" and "pages" attributes) will not be available.

Instead, the element will contain a boolean value 'has_next_page' which will tell you whether or not there are more photos to fetch.
