Without Weston's images, Daybooks would have no market. Not the other way around. Weston dominated the planet of photography in a way few of us comprehend.

As for market reality, well... I don't make my pictures for a market, I make them because I must, and do my best to speak to a viewer through my heart and soul.. and picture. Market considerations are irrelevent.

Shooting for a market, I guess I'd sell shoes.
