Photography and a reason

Having struggled with my "reason" to take photos – and the swampland of photography on the internet making me wonder why I should add to it – I found great photographer Nan Goldin's tips for budding photographers interesting:

"Top tip: Don't do it. There are way too many photographers. Try to draw or get politically involved in something that matters. And unless you need to make art to stay alive, you shouldn't be making art."

I see that as a warning to myself 

Interesting interview over on The Guardian
