What comes to my mind is that much contemporary photography and art looks a lot like the stuff my fellow students were producing in the late '60s. The difference in this Internet age is that it gets exposed to a vast audience without any screening and much of that audience's vocabulary for response seems limited to supurlatives with the result that the creators are immune to contrary critque. They are continually reassured that they are "awesome", their work is "incredible", etc. Why then should they think they could or should do anything to improve? IMO the "democratization" of art has lead to a lowering of quality to match the limited taste and expectations of a mass audience.
