Quote of the Week - Gerry Badger

"Having muscled in on the art world - albeit around its fringes - a lot of photography became aflicted by the very malaise affecting modernist painting, then undergoing what many now see as its terminal crisis. Many photographers - now would-be "artists" - turned from making pictures about the world to making photographs about the medium. Photography rapidly became coyly self-referential, reduced to formal gesture and bland decoration."
