The ongoing moment

Something for the weekend…. A meaty topic to get you thinking about the nature of photography and the value attributed to both the subject matter and the manner in which it is created – found vs constructed.

Sometimes I don’t quite know where photography is going at the moment. On the one hand Gursky’s ‘Rhein II’ sold for over USD $4.3m, while on the other, everyone and his dog with an iPhone/instagram now thinks that they’re a photographer.

There are those far more eloquent than me, so check these out for starters and see what you think…

Matt Henry, Paul Graham, Geoff Dyer

BTW – I’m currently trawling my archive to update my website, so here’s my version of the empty car park shot.
