The best thing I have ever read as it relates to photography. Period. Bar none. guytal.com/wordpress/2011/12/t…
Think I am kidding? I'm not. It says it all completely. A little excerpt: "Most mature and accomplished artists who embraced their own creativity no longer have much use for critique. From that point on, the critic is but a voice representing the tastes of others, who may or may not understand the work, and whose opinion is not likely to make an impact on the artist's direction. The exception, perhaps, is when the artist considers the critic a better artist than they are."
Photography quote of the day? (unrelated to the above but perhaps the other best thing i have ever read as it relates to photography) Sure why not, catch--- ""I am not interested in showing my work to photographers any more, but to people outside the photo-clique. My pictures are not escapes from reality, but a contemplation of reality, so that I can experience life in a deeper way."
- Bruce Davidson
That's all there was and there is no more than that. Period. It says it all.
