I have many favorite quotes, but speaking of photography I love the one from Herman Melville whose books I read as a young girl. “It is better to fail in originality than to succeed in imitation” he says. He doesn’t mean we don’t have to learn from the others. We do have to learn a lot if we don’t want to keep reinventing the wheel. What we don’t have to do is compromising our vision.
If you have time, please watch this loving tribute to a great master. RIP Marvell Smith.
