flower power won’t stop fascist power.
Read a few articles about Tracey Emin stating that art is both her husband and child and because of this, she never married or had children. I’ve been thinking about that quite a bit since I read it a few days ago.
i feel like i may be one of the very few people that feel this way - that if we are to use the tools of the past, that we should push them to their very limits as a nod of respect to those that came before us. i mean that generally, but more specifically i’m looking at flickr right now and there’s so much lo fi film stuff and that all just pisses me off so much - like it enrages me. a lot of really, really smart people (scientists, engineers, chemists, artists, whatever) pretty much devoted their lives to pushing the medium of photography forward for the better part of the last 160 years - and in that time film or emulsion was the dominant medium - and i just feel like we’re shitting all over the past to reduce it to an embracement of its inherent flaws. it really, really makes me angry. i don’t care what you do with the past, or the recent past, destroy it, rehash it now, it’s cool - and i think it’s more relevant to us - noise in the digital camera says much more to us as digital natives than grain and soft focus does.
i don’t know.
YES YES YES, AMEN.
