Not my title, it's the title of this visual Slate article/slideshow:

http://www.slate.com/features/010510...de-show/01.htm

Since there has been much talk on this board recently about fashion photography (and since I happen to agree with almost everything written in this piece!) I thought some of you might enjoy it.

I thought I was just getting old, but I see someone elce cant understand the mediocracy being put up in the name of "Illistration" in today's world.
If you go to alot of the stock photo outlets anymore you see mostly manulipated images and really bad photography. I don't understand how people put up with it. Oh well, we still have g1 to turn to to see good photography.

Interesting article, thanks for posting the link! I guess it sort of answers my question how some medicore photography gets raved over and published. It's not whether it's well done, it's simply who does it. I wonder if some work would be as raved over if the photographer submitted it under an alias?

I would say the philosophy of "attitude over art" not only pops up in fashion photography, look at today's popular music as well (not that it's anything new, it's just more prevalent it seems).

To be fair, some of it's total BS, but at least it allows you to see one perspective of how someone in fashion see is. Also, all the shooter in there are top notch and should at least expose some here to some great fashion work.
