    Perhaps the term "Fine Art" photography is utterly misleading then - it should be "High Craft" Photography instead, as it is usually applied to the work of disciples of St. Ansel and St. Weston who were nothing if not consummate craftsmen and consummate self-promoters.

    Despite his slothfulness, he apparently understood marketing. From the article:
    Tichý famously once said, “First of all, you have to have a bad camera”, and, “If you want to be famous, you must do something more badly than anybody in the entire world.”
