Yep, I think so to.

Douglas F Watt: The endless chase for more and more detail and bigger and bigger MP is completely unabated. It is unclear where the point of diminishing returns might be on this, or have we passed it already?

@Tomm K1. I suppose you are talking to me. Your reading comprehension is off the charts. He is talking about "most PHOTOGRAPHER" not the billions of humans on the planet... Some of them, can't even afford a pair of shoes.

And 2, I would never pretend to know what other "photographers"(or anybody else in any field) need in any %. I stand by my claim of 100% of those who pretend to know what others need, don't know crap about others(read strangers) need. I'm not talking about how much water a city "needs" to supply its citizens based on statistic etc...

DANdeMAN: When an artist - or in this case - a photographer explains is work(not is philosophy), it completely ruins it for me. I don't want to see it trough is eye, I want to see it trough MY eyes. The only exception to that would be documentation/reportage photography. There is something I have learned from people who look at my work, is that they all see it differently, either emotionally or graphically. I would never "steal" that experience from them. After that, if they have questions... DG

ps; I know I'm OT a little but the subject came up.

As I stated in my ps. OT means Off Topic.

Magnar W: Personally I find it great that this tread generates so much interest and activity, but I also feel a bit sad when reading all those comments from people who don't rekognise Dijkstra work and at the same time exposes their lack of knowledge about the arts, without even trying to find out what is going on in her body of work.

Why not try to learn a bit more about why this artist, or others working in the same field of art with photography as their medium, could get a $ 110.000 prize? Would not that have been rewarding, instead of exposing personal lack of knowledge? To learn something new, you have to explore unknown teritory, not just stay into what feels pleasant and comfortable.

There are much more to art, and photography, than 'like' and 'dislike'! And why should personal 'dislike' prove something bad or poor? It just tells what the beholder is used with, or not.

*In the voice of Howard Cosel* I forgot something. After you get "the" knowledge you will have a chance at "getting it". When you get it, you will be as close to Godly as you can get. You will look at this photographic drabeness and GET IT! But it is not over, you will need to know(more knowledge) and understand the word and meaning of "Transition". Without that knowledge you will not GET IT! Got it! Now, go into the world; Get it! and "transition" from being you into them. - Howard

To pkcpga : *in the voice of Ed Sullivan* Well my friend (may I call you my friend?) what you are doing here is showing your lack of knowlegde. You should know that showing your lack of knowledge will make people sad and we can't have that. Don't you know that this is DeadPan? The mere fact of knowing that this is DeadPan photography - some call it art - will completly change your view on this drab work. Now that you know that this is DeadPan, you need to get yourself some knowledge to go with it. Then come back and tell us how fabulous - dare I say fantastic - this work is. Have a really really good show! - Ed.

Oh, do I feel your pain; It must be difficult for you being so cultivated and full of knowledge in regards to the photographic "Arts" while surrounded by poor sad ignorent little people exposing themselves on this board. * Kirk out

BTW, people know that you are using a passive/agressive writing style to dismiss/diminish/degrade and insult them. I will not be using that style to say what I think of you... You are a pompous a$$ full of it! You are a nobody like everyone else on the web... If you what to be sad about something, be sad about that.

DANdeMAN: Oooooh yeah this is "Art" but please don't use the word fine in front of it.
Here are a couple of her "fine" work for you to admire.
First a naked woman with baby and menstrual fluid running down her leg. You can't get more "fine art" than this. http://www.tate.org.uk/art/images/work/P/P78/P78098_10.jpg

Next up. Another naked woman and baby with nappy in a see trough panties.
http://www.tate.org.uk/art/images/work/P/P78/P78097_10.jpg

BTW, you can license those images. Does that mean that they are "commercial" art?
As for the rest of her work from a google search, our parents did exactly the same stuff in the sixties and seventies...

Maybe your parents didn't...

On article PDN announces its 30 emerging photographers of 2017 (27 comments in total)

And PDN as a lucrative "contest" sham that cost the "participants" anywhere for $30 to $45 to enter... RE : ENTRY FEE
$45 for a single or series entry
(series entries contain 2-6 visually related images).
in this contest https://www.pdncuratorawards.com/?pdnhome

So was there a fee for those 300 photographers hoping to "emerge"?

Pitchertaker: It would appear that DPR has no sense of humor.

Yeah, and the next one will be as humorless... My bet is on Oil & Pipelines for is next "virtue signalling / guilt inducing" tour de force... Can't wait to see that one, as most of the equipment he uses is petro based.

Well, well ,well Mr Wong... I recal someone talking about a photo project on molten lava in Hawaii. I don't seem to recal the members name... Oh yes, I remember now; It was myself in this thread jan 19, 2016. https://www.dpreview.com/photography/6410408763/benjamin-von-wong-shark-shepherd-photoshoot-captures-an-underwater-fantasy

Here is the post : "My next project will be a Transvestite having a transhuman/animal hybride baby in a sea of molten lava during a monsoon in Hawaii as the sun is rising creating a rainbow of color not seen by the human eye... Try and beat that, Benjamin."

Of course my post was in gest, but you sure did try to "beat that"... Ironically, in the exact same place. Do you need another photo project? Hahahaha to funny.

On a serious note, if my post was the feotus for this project Mr Wong, credit is due.

You are pushing this climat change sob story now? Blaming climate change for Hurricane Matthew!? Jeez https://lavaforchange.smugmug.com/

Thank you for your support but I will need more than luck to pull that one off... I may have to travel to the 4th dimension to make it happen. But seriously, what would be realy spectacular? Seeing a combination of fire & water, like a flametrower underwater (if at all possible) in wathever scene that would be appropriate... Brain fart? May be. Good luck on your next venture. :^)
