OK, I have ethical and personal problems giving me the run around. Am I still an artist (I know, the art word) if I have someone else develop and print my film? Some background, I have an unrealistic fear of chemicals, bought on by various factors in my life (post traumatic stress after almost dying of the bends, getting poisoned working on a house in my early twenties and a raft of other things.) This makes working in the darkroom a real struggle on so many levels its not funny. I can get people to do the darkroom work, and I am starting to progresivly "de-sensitise" from these (irrational) problems. I have a very clear vision of what I want to do, and the asistance of two very capabile photographers who will do my darkroom work, but I have this nagging feeling that I should "get over it" and do the work. People tell me that many artists have used outside help (Bresson, Maplethorpe, to name two) and that many painters used asisitants to paint background and clothes (Titian for example) under supervision. Then lets not even go near Andy Warhol and Cindy Sherman (who I think are great) but....what do you all think? Can I seriously make this work, and be honest to myself and collectors?
