If (BIG IF) you want to catch "a glimpse of photography's future" and all its associated horrors, be sure to check out the latest crop of artographers from School of Visual Arts latest "Mentors" class. (Previous link is a mercifully brief overview. Full horror show located here.) It's all there: the jaded, blank stares of dead-behind-the-eyes twenty-somethings whose thoughts rarely extend beyond the glow of their iPhones (oh, the ennui!), the yawn-inducing conceptual pieces which lack all sense of visual beauty (see, I photographed this piece of cloth to symbolize...), the utterly pre-diddly-ictible gender-bending (see, Venus was a man! Clever, huh???) and de rigueur, soup of the day homo-eroticism (like the world needs more photos of hairy bears in bathhouses with their junk standing at attention). Oh, mustn't forget the obligatory SJW/BLM cop-bashing! In short, gross, predictable, tasteless and stupefyingly boring. If I were one of the "Mentors" for this group I'd be embarrassed. Sorry, just felt the need to rant!
