Most biographies are not books about the facts of a person's life, although there are definitely facts in there. They are more about why he did this and what was he thinking at such and such a time, and pseudo amateur psychologist/authors sort through his life and say shit like, "well because his mother did this to him when he was 3.... then when he was 30 he did that..." and other such stuff.
"his early bed wetting was the reason he later invaded Russia...."
"he had a mommy complex, so in later years he dressed like her while doing the ironing..."
"he became secretary of state because he had a thing for his dads secretary when he was 9...."
" the screen of the iPhone, iPad, and iPod is black because he suffered through bouts of depression"...
That stuff sounds like a painting, not a photograph.[/QUOTE]
I'm not your mate.
I've never even met you.
Seriously, there are more things in life to feel insulted about. I feel insulted whenever photographers are killed, persecuted, prosecuted or otherwise hounded for doing their jobs. If you really want to feel insulted about anything, look at what's happening in Syria. That's an insult to the human race. IMNSHO
im not offended and have no idea why anyone would be offended.
nothing is shot on film anymore anyways ..
should i be offended that it won't be shot on celluloid ?
personally, i think it would be the best if the filmmaker shot it on an iPhone or an iPad.
Who gives a phuq what he calls it?
However, this thread means I am logging out of here and going to clean my darkroom ready for tomorrow morning, much more productive
