Russell Lee - a talent for relating to strangers

Self-centered But Extremely Generous

Published 2007 September 16

“…Not only that. The basic fundamental difference between these two kinds of photographers is that one is totally self-centered, totally selfish, and the other one is self-centered but EXTREMELY generous at the same time. It’s an odd combination but there you are.” — Elliott Erwitt (On Robert Capa.)

Do Not Connect Me, Please:

Here is a statement from an entrepreneur whose only desire is to sell advertising on your cell phone. “Kids want to be connected to their friends at all times.” Really? I didn’t when I was a kid. I had friends. We spent our days in the streets and backyards where we lived. We had no devices except those we rigged up for fun. Were we any less kids when all we had were waxed cords, two tin cans and a hope that we might hear our voices across the courtyard spanning our apartment houses?
