Great Photographers on the Internet

Just re-read Mike Johnston’s brilliant and hillarious article from almost exactly three years ago – Great Photographers on the Internet

Under the above photograph by Edward Steichen he has put in the following faux internet forum comment –

“… Much too dark exposure and not sharp. I suppose you may say that you tried to make it unsharp but what the hell’s the point in that. I like things sharp. Maybe you should study some other peoples’ photographs here on this forum and get an idea of what a good photograph should look like  …”

PS this photograph by Steichen, “The Pond – Moonlight” was the most expensive photograph ever sold at  $2,928,000 at Sotheby’s in New York in February, 2006.

  1. Hi Rory! Thanks for your comment. It was great to see you at the opening last week. Can’t wait to see what you’ve all been up to at the Galerie Nautique exhibition.

    BTW that article is hilarious!
