Consider this staement from professor, artist, scholar and intellectual who does not practice photography, not really. He hasn't even the basic skills of focusing, selective focus, exposure. Most of his work won't even print But now he's a photographic critic and teaches the subject. When seeing some work which uses certain devices (vocabulary of photography) such as selective focus, selective exposure, attention to rare light, a certain moment and such he says, "The person who did that isn't an artist; he is just a good cameraman." Obviously my usual detachment came apart when I felt this in-person. So... I'm a cameraman. Beats being an artist. N'est pas? Thoughts.
