Is Photography Dead? Or Just Being Beaten to a Pulp?

Two recent pieces worth looking at …

In the New York Times is a story about Richard Prince’s “art” – done by rephotographing famous ads and printing them large. Fair use? Copyright violation? No one’s sure yet.

Up next is a piece from Newsweek titled, “Is Photography Dead?” Which … well … no, it’s not. But author Peter Plagens has wandered off into the woods and stared a little too long into the sun from the edge of a large field and has, well, lost his mind.

Mr. Plagens, I invite you to come visit any of my photojournalism classes and you’ll see tht photography is most certainly not dead. Or even ill.
