Re: 'Sharpness is a bourgeois concept'. — HCB

Interesting mix of an outcome of photographic systems with one of class ideology...... Exactly what did he mean? It sounds like BS to me. These days the bourgeois all use their mobile phone cameras and couldn't give a toss about photographic concepts.

I've never seen much positive attributed to HCB about landscape photography or landscape photographers so I'm not going to worry too much about what he had to say about sharpness. I'm happy to say it's not the be all and end all of every photograph, but it's certainly vitally important in many great photographs. (I'm not thinking of HCB's. I'm thinking of people like David Muench or Peter Dombrovskis and their inspirational (to me) large format wilderness photographs).

Regards,

Rod
