#289: Brother Love Tut

© Virginia Thoren – Used for Commentary

This week, they say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. If you could recreate any single photograph, which one would it be and why? Does everything in a museum really “deserve” to be there or was Sturgeon right and 90% of everything is just crap? Plus, with modern cameras so dependent on software, should camera makers turn to the open source community? Virginia Thoren is our Photographer of the Week. Connect with us!
