There's a big shake up going on in the photography world, with the suspension of David Alan Harvey from Magnum. It brings to mind this post written by KaoRi, a former model for Nobuyoshi Araki, back in 2018: https://blog.usejournal.com/are-you-sure-your-knowledge-is-correct-839c3a12c1b1 (thank you @Tingyi for the reminder!)
When I shared it on Facebook back then, it was met with overwhelming silence from my 1000+ friends, many of whom were involved in photography one way or another... it's good to see that things are changing.
@gueorgui This is so sad. I stopped following Araki since hearing about this, but the photography world is still in love with him. Augh.
@gueorgui Only found this today, but thanks for the read.
I find it baffling that we can have people claim they're "teaching seniority, honour and misoginy", especially when they're, supposedly, artists.
That list feels all kinds of wrong.
Revel in the marvels of the universe. We are a collective of forward-thinking individuals who strive to better ourselves and our surroundings through constant creation. We express ourselves through music, art, games, and writing. We also put great value in play. A warm welcome to any like-minded people who feel these ideals resonate with them.
