Clay Daly

Good night Sir,

I have been a long time fan of, well everything you do and stand for. I actually started podcasting because you inspired me in the days before it was even called podcasting. I know you sort of covered today's episode before, but I am really happy you have gone in to it again. I think it's really important to hear these words.

There is a podcast called Shutter Time with Sid and Mac done by some friends of mine (internet friends), and in the latest episode Mac goes in to the idea of "lazy" photographers. His example is one of photographers replacing poor skies with a sky of a better day, and stating this in not photography and in fact these are just lazy photographers. He also briefly discussed Peter Lik's images (the controversial images) and implying that his work is the work of a lazy photographer. I wanted to know if you had the time, perhaps you could give his 30min episode a listen as well as my reply to his episode. I know this is a big ask, but I would really love to hear a more in depth take by you on the subject. If you don't have the time to listen I fully understand, perhaps would you be willing to maybe cover again the idea of what you consider acceptable in photography (fine art photography mostly) and the idea of photography as art?

Here is Mac's episode: https://shuttertimewithsidandmac.com/2019/02/02/episode-232-the-replacements/

Here is my reply to his episode: https://www.cwdaly.com/recreate-what-you-saw-in-your-minds-eye/

Thank you so much for all you do for our photography/art community
