Quote of Note | Asger Carlsen

(Asger Carlsen)

“There have been many predictions for what photography will become. If you go back five years, people said video is going to be the future. Everyone will become a video artist. I don’t think that’s going to happen. But I do think the role of the top people creating images will change. The still photographer is going to have to become more of a director, and he or she is not necessarily going to be holding the camera. The top photographers are going to become those that have an aesthetic that is beyond what others can do and different from what ordinary people see. There’s always going to be room for someone who has a certain style or concept. Having style means saying something different, and doing something that no one else is doing.”
