A Third I

I love journalism, photojournalism, visual journalism and photography. And I love them in that order.

I like art, but admit I often do not understand it. So this Wall Street Journal article on a New York University photography professor who is going to have a camera embedded into his head totally baffles me. The images will be broadcast into a museum in Qatar at one minute intervals and some of his colleagues have privacy concerns.

My concern? Who has time to look at this stuff? Photography gives us the opportunity to arrange and record specific moments of our lives. To be randomly shooting is just … just … well, art, I guess. Which I don’t get.

At all.
