    Critic thinks photography shouldn't be hung in art galleries.

    Wow... Just wow....

    My first thought is that this guy is really young and has never actually spent the time developing his own film or spent hours and hours printing reiteration of the same image perfecting it to be a perfect print, i'll he does is talk about digital and it sounds like he's very young and doesn't really have much experience with fine art photography but that could be a poor assumption I don't know.

    Either way have fun reading this idiots ramblings...

    I think you nailed it - young, unknowledgeable, and foolish.

    His picture (click on his name) looks like he's in his 50s. But his writing is juvenile.

    I disagree ... to me, it seems he's resurrecting "arguments" that are as old as photography.

    So Jurassic, rather than Juvenile ...

    "Flat and soulless and stupid" eh, mayhaps he hasn't looked at enough photographs -- or enough paintings! Good grief, I regularly see paintings in museums that leave me scratching my head. Anyway, stirring up a ruckus seems almost required to market and promote oneself and one's media employer these days. (Click 'Ignore'!!!)

    Indeed.
    I felt it was someone who wasn't able to express himself well. 'The problem was the lighting,' the person said then decided that 'photos should not be displayed cos they looked insipid' - and not that lighting should be improved!

    Critic thinks????

    It appears to me that this article has a shared problem with much of digital capture, a total lack of editing (should have hit the bin).

    It's just an editorial opinion. Don't let it bother you. The next article you read about photography will probably be a very positive one.

    Haaa yes! Just replace "photography" with "digital photography" in that article, and any one of us might have written the same.

    I think the author isn't familiar with our movement.
