Head in Thought

What may seem nothing to you, may mean something to me. So I'll place it here as a way for me to remember and, maybe, make sense of things. My name is Mario, and to those who stumble in, it's always nice to meet you.

What about the argument that selling photos so cheaply will condition buyers against normal gallery prices?

Answer A) That’s a good argument. It’s probably correct.
Answer B) These prints are so inexpensive, that I can’t believe anyone is comparing them to a gallery experience. I hope everyone sees this as something else. Something parallel to the gallery experience.
Answer C) So what? What’s wrong with that?
Answer D) I don’t think the person that just bought the 4.3M Gursky is hitting refresh on quesofrito.com every week to buy my print. Different markets.

““I never thought of the urban environment as isolating,”… “I leave these speculations to others. It’s quite possible that my work represents a search for beauty in the most prosaic and ordinary places. One doesn’t have to be in some faraway dreamland in order to find beauty.” ~Saul Leiter”

"wanted to know how to become a wealthy artist. It wasn’t really about making work any more, it was about having a big career. I just kept saying ‘keep your head down and get on with it’. If the work is good enough the career will come."

“Why did I write it down? In order to remember, of course, but exactly what was it I wanted to remember? How much of it actually happened? Did any of it? Why do I keep a notebook at all? It is easy to deceive oneself on all those scores. The impulse to write things down is a peculiarly compulsive one, inexplicable to those who do not share it, useful only accidentally, only secondarily, in the way that any compulsion tries to justify itself. I suppose that it begins or does not begin in the cradle. Although I have felt compelled to write things down since I was five years old, I doubt that my daughter ever will, for she is a singularly blessed and accepting child, delighted with life exactly as life presents itself to her, unafraid to go to sleep and unafraid to wake up. Keepers of private notebooks are a different breed altogether, lonely and resistant rearrangers of things, anxious malcontents, children afflicted apparently at birth with some presentiment of loss.”
