hating Art

those who spend weekends wandering — weekdays complaining — a favorite topic is how terrible the “artsy world” is.

Probably in an attempt to moderate, to reconcile, a position of diminution of one group is taken.

Even in polite mode, that group must be called out in quotes — “fine art” — as in snob, or what? Certainly not us. We’re down to earth, taking our pictures seriously. Craft polishing, not apple polishing for those teacher types. We are the elite, they are the effete.
