If you have a chance to listen to BJ's last podcast, he talks about the development of market niches, and talks about APUG & Emulsion (without naming the latter, though). In a nutshell, he argues against the over-nichification (word?) of photography, and proposes instead a more inclusive approach to marketing, and a Renaissance man-like development model for the artist. I was wondering, if you had a chance to listen to it, if that made you think at all about the question of niches. They have become a very solid and almost dominant mode of marketing in the recent years, and I don't see them going away. But they also pose the problem of being potential cul-de-sac, should they become too hermetic. For me, the thing that rang a bell was the Renaissance-man part, the need for a few more structured discussions on subject between photography and lounge chatter. I'm sure many of you have interesting things to say about painting and literature, and no, I don't really want to go to a painting forum to talk about them, because I find many people here to be interesting persons. So, what do you think Poussin meant by "Et in Arcadia ego", then?
