I see too many empty photographs passing for art these days.
Too many empty photographs are passing for art these days. I want images with life and meaning, action and humor. I want them to capture life, to be alive:
George Eastman created a world of photographers in 1888 with cameras that lived up to the slogan, “you press the button, we do the rest.” Perhaps today’s cameras are too easy to use. Point and shoot techniques can lead to empty, lifeless photos. I want to take the concept of picture-taking one or two steps further, from merely taking pictures to making photographs: composition, lighting, finding that decisive moment. I rebel against decision makers who influence collectors into thinking that barren photographs are fine art.
