Too close - different perspective

Post by NikonWeb »

In a forum thread at dpreview.com, someone mentioned the old "get closer" mantra, which made me think of this interesting perspective from acclaimed photo journalist David Burnett:

Too Close! is an exhibition (shown at Perpignan, Sept. 2005) which questions some of the current ideas about how photographers view their subjects, challenging Robert Capa's oft quoted "..if your pictures aren't good enough, you're not close enough.."
