I used to think otherwise, but now I am nearly convinced. Regardless of the genre, photography (as an abstracting, decontexting art) must reveal more of the photographer than it does the subject. Was it Avedon that said "the only reality in my pictures is my reality" ? Powerful considering how many say a great portrait reveals the character of the subject. Does it not just reveal which aspect of the subject's character fits the agenda/vision of the shooter? I'll leave it there for now, but is the consensus for or against this position?
