Rolling Stones Keith Richards Daughter Alexandra Richards
I recently photographed Alexandra Richards daughter of Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards for Harper's BAZAAR as well as the video. If you are curious, you may link here:
Ya know, there are several members who note on the site when they’ve had a significant achievement. I noted a recent achievement, Slobodan does the same when one of his foto solicitations finds its way a magazine. RSL has done the same several times. In fact, the list of those who have noted achievements here goes on and on going back all the years I’ve been a member and i'm sure much longer than that.
Clearly noting an achievement is an accepted practice. When we do note an event, the note is about the achievement, but the underscore is always that it was the person who made the achievement. It amounts to self-promotion.
So....as an open question... when or why is it okay to be flippant to one person for their self-promotion but not another?
To me the act of criticizing someone’s achievement has an unsavory aroma. That is my opinion, by the way, and I won’t try to pretend an opinion anything but an opinion.
Keep up the great work, Benjamin!
