Young practitioners now are expected to be good at verbalising their intentions, verbalising their results, self-promotion and networking etc. I think these lists are getting a little out of hand as they often highlight the opposite of what led me to photography in the first place. They often appear to be steered by few, friends of friends, publishers, authors, writers etc and perhaps this back scratching can lead to exclusion of many who make work who can’t or don’t want to ‘play the game’.
I’ve set up a tumblr to act as my website while using this as a research tool and blog of sorts.
Have a gander if you like, hot off the presses as i only set it up today!
