As we all know the junkie and drag queen lobbies are the most powerful organised block of people in the art world. Based on that proposition your remarks are correct. Of course other than just saying this, you have nothing else to base your statements on. I would be curious as to where you found this piece of biographical data?

Odd, but when impressionism first hit the art world, the critics went bananas, calling it, as one of them stated, "less than garbage." So much for Renoir and Monet, Manet, and Delecroix.

Personally I feel that Ms Goldin captures the feel and the moment of her subjects. And while I don't shoot the same subjects as she does, I certainly appreciate her talent and drive.

Someone high on drugs, with a camera, and let loose on the streets to photograph the dregs of society I would hardly call talented. Of course the drugs do contribute to the drive. Im betting she takes pictures so she will know what she did when she comes back down. I think any recognition she gets is sadly misplaced and more deserving to an honest photographer capable of producing photos that are more pleasing to the eye whether the subject is more

You are confusing your taste in photography, with eeryones taste in photography, and then pontificating on the subject. Worst of all you are confusing someone who has remained true to her artistic vision and juxtoposing her next to someone like Tina Brown; a woman who became famous, not because her work was good, or even controversial, but because she wore transparent blouses.

You don't like her work? Fine. But you seem to feel that not only do you have to attack her work, but you have to do so by attacking her personally. Personally, I avoid the position of casting the first stone about people - When I become a Saint, (June 4th, 2023) maybe I'll change my approach.
