Flickring Out


General Photography

“Despite all the critics who have claimed photos are ‘a grammar,’ images are more like a half-language […], always both objective and freighted with meanings that even the photographer and her audience only sometimes understand. Good photography somehow can tell more, with its pulp and its present-ness. That combination of directness and mysteriousness that is part of being a half-language must be preserved into the future. Despite the fact that amateurs have made iconic images in the past […] there have been many more iconic images that are actually extremely professional […]. If we are to keep this history alive, we need to find ways to support professional photojournalists outside of the magazine and newspaper industry.” - story
