Photography critics famously disregard the difference between an opinion and a fact.

I’m starting a piece on 1. how to identify ungrounded opinion disguised as education, based on taste, not fact, presented as factual. (For example, when you see someone blog with the title, “What is Art Photography?”, be alarmed. You can be pretty sure the guy will be criticizing anyone who doesn’t see things his way. His definition will sound as if it’s reality, fact, instead of what it is, an opinion based on resentment and grudges, and so on.) And I’ll be investigating

2.  some possible motives underlying the urge to educate (Tutorial personality disorder?)

Here’s an example of an opinion expressed as a fact from the great photographer Robert Frank.

“Black and white are the colors of photography.

To me they symbolize the alternatives of hope and despair to which mankind is forever subjected.”

The first sentence is an opinion stated as a fact. The second reveals the source:  “me”.

“To me” might be the most underappreciated words in the world.

One of the lessons learned from two years on Instagram is that the photo art of her own, what she liked most was never the same as the versions others liked.

An interviewer made a side remark. He said, “I like some of your edits more than others”.

“Exactly”, she responded. “I show them all, because the ones you don’t like will be liked by others and vice versa. Hedge your bets, Jack.”

It became important to fight the assumption that a choice should necessarily be made. Carveth stopped sifting and began showing multiple variations of one initial capture.

She began to question the meaning of “unfiltered”. More on this
