Yes, thanks for the link, Rob. It's a very thoughtful and insightful set of essays.
But I'm curious, Rob: Many of your posts have suggested that the "art" of photography can't be taught, and that you either "have it" or you don't. It seems to me, however, that a young photographer just starting out could learn a great deal from Haas's philosophy writings. I note that he doesn't tell you how do do anything (no "rules" at all). But he does urge thinking about the right questions, which I believe will help any photographer figure out the best ways to use whatever talent he or she has.
This is what I call good teaching, that helps you focus on what's important. It's a far cry from the drivel that probably gets "taught" in most photography classes. But I wouldn't know about that, because I have only ever studied with Masters (Minor White, Paul Caponigro, Rembrandt, RobC, ...)
Anyway, it's a great read, Rob.
