I enjoy and respect much of HCB's work but would hardly call "Tehran 1950" one of his "masterpieces". One of his least impressive published works IMHO. But that's just an amateur speaking...

No matter how hard one works at freezing time there are no guarantees. Yes it can be soul crushing. Flickr Commons said they had 200+ million photos for free back in 2011. I don't know where they are at now, but who could even look through 200 million pix?

Your best bet is to do it for love. If you have expectations you most likely will be disappointed. Expectation are preplanned resentments. If you do photography for love you can find happiness.

... Expectations are preplanned resentments. ...

Wow, as a student of both human behavior and philosophy, I'm stealing this little gem and carving it in stone for my students!  Thanks!

A quick search with Google would suggest not. I also like it, nevertheless.

One measure of success is how successful you are at irritating art critics.

"I look at the pictures I have done up to now, and they make me feel that who we are and how we feel and what is to become of us just doesn’t matter. Our aspirations and successes have become cheap and petty. I read the newspapers, the columnists, some books. They all deal in illusions and fantasies. I can only conclude that we have lost ourselves, and that the bomb may finish the job permanently, and it just doesn’t matter, we have not loved life… I cannot accept my conclusions, and so I must continue this photographic investigation further and deeper. This is my project."

You do not have to be good at something to decide whether you like it or not.
But for your critique to be taken seriously, you need to at least show knowledge of the subject. Being very good at the subject gives you extra heft to any thoughts you may have on something.
