^^I was going to kick to you, that even as student I have a photography career and have had work in a number of legitmate galleries and been in handful noteworthy group shows. And sold photographic prints for as much as $1,600 for a framed 24x24 1 of 1 Lambda print. And more than likely am going to go to top 5 graduate school for photography.
But that probably wouldn't suffice.
You're right I'm arrogant, and when crossed or feel someone comes at me sideways I'm wildly condescending. And someone has really be someone in art/design world for me to be humble before them. I would agree with all that and if thats a fault of my own so be it. But every really successful artist I've ever met acts like their *#+@ doesn't stink whether it does or doesn't. So save it, you do you, I'll do me.
And you're also right alot of the stuff I kick here is reasonably simple and available information that I simply know off hand. But instead of having intellectual conversation and serious critique of work which is what I do in my own practice aside from creating work, most of NT wants to talk/learn about technical *#+@ that I know off hand or just post a dozen disconnected photographs and say simple make trite remarks like posting
next to photographs like that aptly describes the asethetic experience they get from a photo and if that's what people want… I've tried to change it, so this thread would be more what I think would be more productive/benefitial to the pratice of photography, but it's evident what people want this thread to be so…
And no need to reply. I'm done, not responding to you but with this thread. Like I've said before I've spent mad time in this thread helpfully critiquing the work of most of the people who've posted in here one time or another. I've kicked certain things of various complexity to people a dozens of times. They could have just look pages back, nah, I was nice enough that I just know it off hand I'll just explain it again. I've answer dozens of random +$+ PMs, IMs, and Emails from tons of NT'er who post in this thread and those who don't. I earned my stripes, but I'm done. I don't get anything from this thread and for a good minute I didn't post in it because of that, but it's whatever. I really ultimately have better things to do and infact at the moment I have to read Martha Rosler's work "In, around, and afterthoughts" (on documentary photography) for tomorrow and I hope it's more intellectually simulating than this thread has been for quite sometime.
If someone has question they think I can answer, you're more than welcome to PM me.
