Vision / Reinvention

Saw this Stephen Shore vid on APE, most of what he says here is pretty straightforward -- really his work comes down to the study of composition, of which Shore is a master.

I did find his comments about longevity interesting -- there are two types of photographers that endure: those that have a singular powerful steamrolling vision, and those that consistently reinvent themselves.

I'm too early in my career to know which group I fall into, but the second one sounds more my speed. As Shore says, reinvention brings a whole new set of questions, and that's what keeps it interesting.
