“The Death of Photography”

death-of-photography-matt-weberRecently I was told by a very knowledgeable fellow that photography was dead, and that we had entered the post photography era, or something to that effect. Well maybe the fact that everyone has a camera and is photographing every single person on this planet, could have devalued the art slightly.

I’m not an expert on the business end, and I may be the worst business person on earth, but there has been a big change in actual prints and how they are sold. An Edward Weston pepper will still get furious bidding, but many other living photographers (Like myself) are finding it harder to sell even our best images….

Bla bla bla. I know this is old news.

  1. Hey we know what you mean! Michael Penn suggest we all help each other out. Which I have done to the degree that I can. I own my very own Matt Weber photograph! And I am grateful for it. I own several of Michael Penn’s Philadelphia Project books. I had purchased a Saul Leiter book a few years back.
    Support living artist/photographer, the dead ones don’t need your money!
