I totally agree, as a young photographer I´ve encountered a mind blowing idea of photography I was totally unaware of. Two months ago after a workshop, I started printing and trying to improve my edit, it has been quite difficult and clearly I have so much to learn but I feel I´m on the right track, thanks for this article!
“Why is narrative such a difficult concept for young photographers to master? Because it is a concept that they are unaware of. It is something that they take for granted and do not question, something that visual digital sharing platforms do not encourage. Because it is something that is pushed to the back of the educational queue in favor of technical skills, post-production proficiency and other photographic aspects that fulfil an easily implemented marking matrix. And yet — just as with writing — the establishment of a clearly defined, developed narrative is the foundation of all successful storytelling.”
