If you aspire to be an amazing professional photographer, you must study photographers with amazing work. Your job isn’t to copy, but to learn what’s great about them, what’s not-so-great and figure out your own approach. These 3 photographers in particular have a lot to offer.
Art has always been a medium of expression for the people, by the people. When institutions attempt to commoditize it, its beauty becomes distorted. As a gallery, we understand the need to find balance between creativity and commerce. But when the voice of the people becomes suppressed to serve a bureaucratic agenda, the resulting art becomes a force of revolution by the people.
In the late 70s, Hip-Hop became that revolutionary force in music due to the radio’s suppression of the budding art form. However, this cyclical “changing of the guards” gained widespread attention with the emergence of the 19th century art-movement known as Impressionism.
