I don't know who's side to take on this. The article makes me pause and question my own direction.

Going around in circles for 10 years? Maybe it's longer than that.

I'm starting to prototype an idea for some photos. I noticed some local social issues and wondered why the usual responses haven't been effective. I really want to get involved and make a difference, but I don't know where to start. All I know is what I see, or what I hear happened that I didn't see.

Another thread asked for references about Gene Smith, so I pulled out an old book that mentions him at least a dozen times. Flipping through, I landed on a page where an editor was describing a young photographer who brought a few stories.

There it was, in 1958, my idea.
