via zoe, via reciprocity failure

excellent post about race, money, and photography, and the fact that the entire judging panel for the recent PDN photo annual competition was white.

“Just how is it that to this day, people of color are still not represented anywhere near proportionately in these creative command positions?
One major reason (the major reason?) is blatantly obvious- the economics of the photo world stratosphere.”

“God bless William Eggleston, love his stuff to death- but how well would his name be known if he had had to work for a living?”
