Everyone is a photographer; not everyone is an ARTIST

In a Q&A with the director of Paris Photo fair, Florence Bourgeois answered an interesting question: "With the advent of camera phones and social media, we’re exposed to more images than ever before. Can photography still stand out?"

The response:
"In many ways, everyone today has become a photographer — but not everybody is an artist. That, I believe, is the difference: an artist reflects on the long-term shape of their practice in a way that those taking a quick photograph do not. Of course, we’re interested in the images that appear on social networks, but that’s not at the heart of what we wanted to present."

Be an artist. Take time, feel, connect, compose, step back, gather, remember, recompose, create.
