It's late, I'm in a temporary lull in the effects of my chemotherapy, and I'm feeling far too righteous, so you'll have to ignore or abhor the preaching. I grew to photographic and general adulthood from days when men were men (if they were white) and women were girls. I attended segregated schools until Jr. High. At the time a 'candid' photograph of a passed-out drunk was high art. A look at any of the photographic magazines of the 1930s and 1940s will show many examples of distasteful images dressed as art (could I mention Mortensen?). Many of us who grew during and after WWII on have been educated into different, even 'PC' viewpoints by our younger colleagues and particularly our own children, but we still can often be rightly accused of being tone-deaf when we fail to realize that times truly have changed. (Both of our current Presidential candidate encounter this problem frequently, being of a 'certain age.' Many older folks who have not been so educated are still around, but shuffling off. Of course, these attitudinal 'problems' are not only a matter of generations, but also a matter of class in the sociological sense (in what is touted as a classless society). Now that I have perhaps offended some of the old boys here, I will offer, ex cathedra, some commandments for photography in the 21th century: First do no harm. Do not photograph others as you would not be photographed yourself Do not 'steal' images from people for whom their small 'tips' from being photographed are much more important than you might realize. As 21st century photographers are discovering, releases for commercial use are no longer just for Europe and North America No doubt you can offer additions or "counter-commandments"
