No picture today, sorry – for some reason, my computer is completely refusing to open lightroom today. Instead, I bring you a link to a wonderful letter, written by Magnum photographer Sergio Larrain to his nephew, on how to be a photographer.
Photograph the way you like it. Don’t believe in anything but your taste, you are life and it’s life that chooses… You are the only criterion. Keep learning. …The conventional world puts a veil over your eyes, it’s a matter of taking it off during your time as a photographer.
This letter was written in 1982, but every word is as relevant today as it was then. Seriously, take 5 minutes and read this.
