Voted World’s Greatest Ramp to the Beach
All photography and art, Jessie Carveth 2017
When everyone leaves. I go.
Where the ramp leads
Photography critics/writers disregard the difference between an opinion and a fact.
When you see a title like, “What is Art Photography?” or “How to Make Your Photography Stand Out”, be wary. You can be pretty sure the writer isn’t teaching. She’s criticizing.
Her information will sound as if it is a consensus among photographers,–facts–instead of what it is: opinion.
Here’s an example of an opinion expressed as 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 fact. The second sentence negates the factual intent.
