Great thoughts on Photography

Petapixel.com had this on their website today and is an absolutely fantastic video editorial about what is really important in this age - Alex Kilbee argues that it’s NOT the number of Instagram likes.  He wants us to go back to the first days of our photography experience and rekindle that joy and passion.  His brilliant example is that of Vivian Maier who is arguably one of the best photographers of the 20th century.  And yet were it not a fluke of discovery no one would have known about her.  She absolutely had no desire to show her work despite it’s absolute brilliance.  Did this make her less of a photographer?  I think not and that’s the whole point.
