European press review by Michel Philippot


Not once since I began writing this column have I felt as sad as I feel right now. What must be happening today so that newspapers I read—newspapers which supposedly have a “visual policy”—what must be happening for them to be so devoid of pictures that mean something, instead of serving merely as illustration. It doesn’t cost more, but it’s certainly easier. Mediocrity is always easier. Taking risks simply isn’t on the agenda. Festivals, galleries and the web show us every day the intelligence and beauty and discussions happening in the world of photography. I beg you, wake up! Forget your tasteless, brainless luxury watch ads and get to work!
