“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.

Las Vegas 1992

Wedding-Chapel-Las-Vegas-Matt-weberThis was the first time I used oil paints on a photograph and I think the results were OK. I had finally reached Vegas on my cross country trip in 1992 and I didn’t have anymore Kodachrome….

Fear & Loathing in New York

 reagan-aids-protest-matt-weber-nycWatching the HBO movie, “The Normal Heart” brought back a lot of very sad memories last night. Like most New Yorkers, I lost friends and I remember the fear which the virus caused many of us to feel. I recall how badly some people behaved including many from the right. The comments I’d hear in the back of my cab or see written on walls were sickening. There was a shortage of sympathy, and as usual a handful of people made a huge difference in fighting for those who couldn’t fight for themselves…
