    Non-Photography Day?

    I just came upon this link:
    http://www.nonphotographyday.com/

    It was suggested by the blurb I was just reading;
    http://thedifferanceengine.typepad.c...phy/index.html
    that this was yet another manifestation of the changes we've seen in the 'establishment's dislike of photography of public spaces. Would someone like to comment on this? I'm not at all sure that this comes out of the same source of agitation however.

    Using film since before it was hip.

    How about a non-stupid day?
    (where would you hide all those people though?)

    Photography is zen.
    After all, the true photographer captures the moment in his heart, his eyes, his mind, his every being. That being recorded is almost secondary.
    Especially film photographers that don't need to look at the lcd screen afterwards to verify the "correctness" of that moment.

    I remember this in another earlier thread. Caused quite a debate - what else is new? I liked the idea of not mechanically/electronically/chemically documenting anything for one day. Pretty neat, but we're humans, there's no way we could have all done that. We're slaves to our tools/machines. Read the above posts....

    Regards, Art.

    "Celebrate the moment, Don't document it......"



    Photography IS a celebration of the moment.

    I couldn't think of anything witty to say so I left this blank.

    I'd think a "non-driving day" might be somehow a little more relevant to the world these days.
