Legendary photographer Robert Capa is often quoted as having said that „if your pictures aren’t good enough, you’re not close enough“. Yesterday, John Mcpherson published a thoughtful essay on duckrabbit about what „being close enough“ could mean if you’re a photographer. „I used to think that this referred to physical proximity, getting into someone’s face, right up there close. It took a long time and many hard knocks for me to realise I was completely wrong.“
