W. o’ W.: Alvin Langdon Coburn

“Photography is too easy in a superficial way, and in consequence is treated slightingly by people who ought to know better. One does not consider Music an inferior art simply because little Mary can play a scale. What we need in photography is more sincerity, more respect for our medium and less respect for its decayed conventions.”  Alvin Langdon Coburn, in The Future of Pictorial Photography, 1916
