And for the record, I happen to know the photographer quoted. He does indeed have a connection to his subjects...a statement pretty apparent when you look at his work. Have you done so? That sort of quality comes from actually creating work...not sitting on an internet forum crapping all over people and subjects you know little about. Kind of like that pitchfork and haystack analogy you poetically referenced.

I know one is not supposed to 'feed the internet troll', but an egregious statement is an egregious statement. Splash some cold water on your face, go outside and feel the sun on your face. And hey, why not bring a film camera with you, while you're at it. What you might want to avoid doing, is dumping on a dedicated film photographer...**on a forum devoted to analog film shooting*. Good lord....
