This is one of two of my Wait pictures which were published in the latest LIP magazine. You can find it on sale at the Photographers’ Gallery and a handful of other places in London (see list on first link). It’s hard to be too excited about this because aside from the fact that the two chosen pictures don’t make a lot of sense on their own, they edited my text, without any discussion, including adding a line of observation at the end (“I do see them as still figures surrounded by bustling street life”) which I didn’t even make. Sigh. You can see more pictures from this series here along with my original text (which doubtless would benefit from editing but by someone else).
According to this survey digital cameras are the most confusing gadget and 46% of us don’t read the manuals. I spend a fair amount of time teaching people how to use their DSLRs so don’t find any of this surprising. Compared to the simple, manual only, film cameras that I learnt on, the modern digital camera is incredibly complex with a horrible interface and for the novice, an indecipherable manual. [Pic]
