Re: Leibovitz attacked for not photographing someone right

Looking into some of the criticism it I get the feeling that a lot of people seem to pile on the "racist" bit on the fact that they don't like the artistic look of the shots (dim lighting, muted colours).

A bit like adding "AND YOU ARE UGLY!" atop a disagreement.

Fans of once-in-a-lifetime gymnast Simone Biles are over the moon that Biles
is on the cover of the August issue of Vogue, but as for the actual photo,
not so much.

Several critics on Twitter (including New York Times national picture editor
Morrigan McCarthy) took shots at the dimly lit images of Biles inside and out
by famous photog Annie Leibovitz and suggested that Vogue should have used a
black photographer (and hire more black photographers in general), or at the
very least find someone who better understands black skin tones.

Knew very little about photography when I decided to buy the awesome Nikon D70; learned quickly that this expensive camera didn't make me a good photographer.
