    I have more important things to worry about, like how I'm going to pay my utility bills this Winter that are shortly going up by 9%, I'll leave "the status of fine art photography" for the photographic artists to worry about.

The rest is simply what you saw. To me I'm not sure his observation either helps or detracts.
    What I do like about it, though, is that in my mind it filters out all of the works that are done WITHOUT temperament, so called 'art' that is created for reasons other than being strongly motivated to simply 'have to' create, show, and reveal.

    I was a sculptor many years ago, so an artist, I also took snapshots. Around the time I ceased making sculpture my photography became more important but it was more than a decade before my photography became art.

    It's something Ive thought about over the years and while my old Professor and a few others would say I'm a Fine Art Photogrpaher I'd rather just be known for my images. I do have an MA for my sins.
