Death of Photography

This right here–this is modern photography. Shot with a cell phone, processed to look like a Polaroid, intended to make an ironic comment about the state of photography, catching a spontaneous photobombing moment that undermines the irony and makes an entirely different comment than what was intended, a comment that’s probably more true.

Robert Frank, who knew a thing or two about photography, once said, “There is one thing the photograph must contain, the humanity of the moment.” This is it, right here.

Right here. Three years ago. Perfect.
