“We are buried beneath the weight of information, which is being confused with knowledge; quantity is being confused with abundance and wealth with happiness.
We are monkeys with money and guns.”
― Tom Waits
An interesting read; thanks for posting.
That's great! Didn't know he thought himself a surrealist but called himself photojournalist to get assignments. Makes sense looking back that is exactly what he is!
I enjoyed it. Thanks
The best pictures were in that book, “The Decisive Moment.” I took them when I was 20. Immediately, after a fortnight. The first day I started pictures.
This thought resonated with me last night when I was introduced to a photographer in his 20's...
You don't have to pay any dues to create great photographs, you can be great from the start.
Thanks for that link, some of which I had not read before.
