    "Art" is whatever a seller claims it is. "Good art" is what a buyer has convinced themselves it is. "Great art" is what a professor makes money out of by publishing books and making media appearances.

    So art is only art if it is monetised?

    I had the Gandolfi brothers make a camera and stand to which I added a Super Angulon lens. Five Four photography with a bathroom darkroom was challenging but it slowed me down and taught me a lot. I got rid of it because it became more important than me in my photography and cut film is pricey. I still favour a tripod; it makes for more careful photography with higher success rates.

    It depends on whether cynicism exceeds common sense.

    Going by my daughter’s projects then yes it is. It costs us a fortune!

    Art is only art if
    a critic says it is
    or a large Gallery displays it on its walls
    or if it costs a fortune to produce and is promoted in the media widely
    or if it shocks enough to appear in the BJP.

    Cynicism is uncommon good sense.

    Just noticed that there is a feature in this weeks AP where Joel Meyerowitz shares tips on street photography. WonderIng if these will be the same or different from those already featured in “The Observer”?

    I suspect any tips need to be adjusted for the audience. For experienced types you might leave out which button to press.
