An email from Stan Banos of Reciprocity Failure notoriety (see links) titled ‘uh .. oh’ can only mean one thingWritten by duckrabbit
Either Stan has finally challenged Joerg of Concientious to a game of Twister , or someone, somewhere is kicking off.
In this case its a typhoon of a post by Sebastien Boncy that can be found on Amy Steins blog.
When Sebastien pretty much opens with these words you know punches won’t be pulled:
‘Let’s take it for granted that Pieter Hugo is a talented and conscientious photographer and assume he has not a racist bone in his body. Somehow, that isn’t enough and I’m still disturbed.’
Good. Because I watched a promotional video by another multimedia outfit the other day that contained the lie that ‘the photography world is like a friendly family. We all support each other.’
People in privilege and power don’t like it when others ask questions. They do a Pieter Hugo and attack their accusers by calling them “condescending” “white liberals”.
Some of us know better and some of us ought to know better.
