    From The Photo Collectors Bible, Chapter 1 on what makes a good photographer for you to consider when investing in images you hope will increase in value.

    "The only good photographer is a dead photographer".

    I previously stated that only good photographers are living, and that to be considered a great photographer, you have to die.

    Apparently, to say that the only good photographer, is a dead photographer, goes hand in hand with some ethnic minorities, based on prejudices of the ignorant.

    Not trying to start an argument here, nothing personal intended. Just an observation that has been carried on through history, based more on the main reason why many buy art, to make money on the financial appreciation of dead artists works. Compared to buying the works of a living unknown, whose work you personally really like.

    Maybe good living photographers are a minority.
    Time & tides wait for no one, especially photographers.
