Imaging →

“…Imaging becomes a universal form of conversation, rather than the freezing of a special moment or a piece of professional editorial content…The universal scope of the camera and the saturation of our lives with the photos we take also means that ‘taking pictures’ is now no more meaningful a term than ‘writing’. Hence Snapchat, Instagram and Facebook or WhatsApp photo sharing are no more all ‘photos’ than Word, Indesign, Wordpress and twitter are all ‘text’. Photos are no longer a category.”

What does it mean to be a “Professional Photographer” today?
