What role does the photographer have in society?

“I think that is different for everyone who picks up a camera. Some want to share an experience, educate or shine the light on a wrong in our world. Some just want to show what they had for lunch. For me, in the commercial realm of advertising, it is about the challenge of taking an idea and bringing it to reality to share with others.”

Impermanence of Art

One of my favorite art galleries, Thinkspace in Culver City California, recently collaborated on a project with the Long Beach Museum of Art entitled “Vitality and Verve: Transforming the Urban Landscape”.

This is a short film about the amazing graffiti artists that they brought together for the show. What is the real kicker is that these masterpieces were painted over at the end of the show… just like the street graffiti would be. It’s worth the time to watch the talent and skills of the artists creating this art that no longer physically exists.
