Photography as Fashion
This is a chapter from the book A Lesser Photographer.
Here’s to the fashionistas:
to the ones who wear a camera to complement their clothing
to the ones who agonize over the number of compartments in their bags
to the ones who wouldn’t be caught dead with black lenses on their Canons
to the ones whose judgment of an image is shaped by who and what made it
to the ones who lament the loss of their safe business models
to the ones who wish they were born a few decades earlier
to the ones who scoff at hobbyists and amateurs
to the ones who talk about creativity, then fully automate their shooting
Thank you. You make it so much easier for the artists to stand out.
