I may not be rich but I'm happy. Lots of rich people aren't.
And no I don't think you really can get rich. The better you get, the more you want to specialize and be more anal you get about every aspect.
Therefore you spend more and more time on one print/neg or a series of prints and that is not a way to get rich. To get rich you must mass produce and it flies in the face of fine art.
Also rich is a relative term. And my relatives arent rich either. Damn.
(From the line " he got rich the old fashioned way...he inherited it")
