"Beaute de futur" Małgosia Bela photographed by Jean Baptiste Mondin for Vogue Paris 2001
The thing is, photography is such a technology riddled art form, that the ability to take an OK photograph without years and years of training is a relatively easy thing to do, and has been since the 1880s. Though the feeling I get is that when photographers dismiss other photographers by being too snapshotty, it is kind of like them saying “Hey asshole! Don’t you know that we are suppose to have expensive digital cameras, a ton of studio strobes, a big tripod and $2500 lenses to take photographs that grandma literally cannot replicate the look of with her old point & shoot camera from 1987? Quit letting the peasants feel like they can be an artist too without making the same financial investments we have!”

I love when people get surprised by how elitist art, especially photography, can be. It has always been that way, I’m just surprised we are still letting all this bullshit be the standard.
