I honestly believe that photography has never had the opportunity to do such important work, link us all, unify us all, as in the right now.
I don’t like TV, so I don’t own one, I don’t dig narcissism, so I don’t look at that work or swim in those streams.
Art school taught me a lot about the strata of class within art, I avoid it at all costs within photography.
I’m drawn to those that give a fuck, and make work with that as their fuel, and there are many, many editors, curators, bloggers and photographers that do.
The rest, still have not figured out that we all die, all they will leave are vacuous shadows, totems to the self, not much of a legacy, cause/effect.
To have, at our disposal, the internet, mass communication, coupled with the photographic story, such a blessing, such an opportunity, we are very, very lucky.”
