to accept the cruel curse of mediocrity, and to scorn it

both as producer and as consumer, therefore, henceforth to eschew :

pictorialism in any form

the exoticism of poverty

the 'innocence' of children

the alluring 'beauty' of nature

the cuteness of pets

the otherness of animals

the celebration of the trivial

the trivialisation of the sacred

'war-torn' photojournalism - the porn of the culturally anaesthetised

the image whose only raison d'ĂȘtre is envy (that I were there rather than here)

the image whose only raison d'ĂȘtre is relief (that I'm here rather than there)

at least, until the snow comes ...
