    They're shooting a wide pattern here. I do tend to agree with _some_ of their assessments. I hesitate to say which.

    I'm surprised they missed Cindy Sherman.

    No problem, I am ignoring most noted photographers. I am not into this to copy, replicate or becoming a fan-boy anyway. Whatever they did, they did well, means jack squat to me, to be honest.

    Try to avoid that herd of independent minds.

    i guess one should avoid anything iconic, and noteworthy in the last 175 years

    I think what they are getting at is to find your own photographic voice rather than emulating one of the popular masters.

    Oh, the righteous indignation in some of the responses by those who can only read the words literally and not see between the lines! Thanks for posting.

    I try to avoid photographers who refer to themselves as "Artists", because self advertisement is no recommendation.
