the photographic world of 2016

“I am probably over simplifying many key elements in my rant. It is only that- a rant. I am sure that I am missing other quibbles to have about photography and since I am not being paid to write this drivel, I am simply going to let the problems carry on as this is the truth that I have experienced and there is little I can do about it just as there is nothing I can do about global warming, the world debt (to the Martians?) or any other of the many complexities of any of the other markets that drive photography’s and humanity’s potential into the ground. What I do purport to do is to get these little things off my chest and perhaps give some small insignificant insight into the market, the community and the potential that is missing for photography in a few key categories. I do not have answers and I do not really even care.”

Photography, there has to be a dialogue.

http://cphmag.com/conversation/

“Think about family photography. It’s great if you want to photograph your family’s drama, whatever it might be. Things is, though, we all got some family drama, and we’ve also seen quite a bit of it photographed already. So what is it then that you’re bringing to the conversation that adds something substantially new? This is not to deny your personal drama. It’s just wondering why everybody else needs to see it.”
