Strictly Business 3: The Artist Lost and Found, Part I


Browse Multimedia by

September 23, 2011 · Published by ASMP

Sean Kernan reflects on how photographers—all of us, of any age—begin like wide-eyed children. The deep art instinct opens us to the world and rewards us with the joy of just seeing. Then we make it our business, which supports us, but also pulls us away from the reason we started. If you think this loss doesn’t affect your business, think again.
