Artistic Recruiting

I was wandering through the subway the other day and ran into another photographer.

Not a real photographer, but a simulation of how a photographer should look as imagined by a consensus of the creatives of a marketing firm.

Sadly, this persona is something that’s rare in the real world.

I’m talking about the very small number of women photographers.

There are simply too few.

I hope that an impressionable girl sees this photograph, not for the marketing message but for the idealized portrayal of this woman as a commercial artist.

Maybe it will inspire her to see the possibilities of an artistic journey that might include a career with a camera.
