The single most destructive impulse I’ve consistently observed in amateur photographers, after working with them more or less continuously over 22 years, is their insecurity about not being liked or understood, and their concomitant anxiousness to please others. Nothing is worse for your art than pandering to make more people like you. That may, indeed, be the principal legacy of a good art school education: the crucial insight that it is only by pleasing oneself that the artist can ultimately please others. It’s why professionals, whose job is, after all, to create things that are immediately and obviously pleasing to broad numbers of viewers, are so seldom remembered for their artistry—and when they are, it’s because at their essence they are artists playing at commerce rather than commercial photographers playing at art.
