Mark Posted October 22, 2013 Share Posted October 22, 2013 The big item I miss so much about all the images I look at on alamy (or any other agency for that matter) is the story. There are great images of places, people, events, natural wonders, less-than-natural wonders, disasters, misery, happiness, whatever, but NONE have words attached to them that tell the full story. I try to read the "story" from the photos (some work better than others), but I turn away still feeling empty. Stories untold. Such great pictures reduced to illustrations in someone else's story. What about your stories? This is not a call for strory-telling. I am just sad that good editorial images here and elswhere are dumped into a bucket hoping someone will find a use for them. I have the same feeling on Flickr, 500px etc (which is why I have stopped looking.....buckets of mush). Whatever happened to the story-telling power of photography? The only good photo is the one that sells? I don't think so! Would love to see a place where some deeper background around good photos is captured and presented. What about you? Or is it just me with a skewed perspective? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
