As for the article well its just someone who’s preconceived idea of Daido Moriyama didn’t come up to expectations.

As for the site well its a part of a money making concern and not much of a resource for matters photographic

It was also his attitude towards photography, book publishing, and time.

There is no where good to turn to for "matters photographic" anymore. It's all become crap.

I wouldn't go that far, I enjoy Lenscratch, Conscientious Photography Magazine, American Suburb X, and Landscape Stories quite a bit. Lots of good work on those sites, IMO.

The problem with those publications in my thinking is that the photo's are too perfect... If a photo isn't perfect anymore in 'all respects', people bash it. So that leads to too much time concentrating on the post photo and not enough time enjoying and appreciating the actually photography aspect.

my thoughts

I agree. But sometimes I think also that imperfection or - in my case a disinterest in perfection - leads people to criticise (or dwell on) the imperfections rather than look at the photograph.

But in either case it depends on the viewer and how they choose to look.
