The Death Boogie Diaries - Comments on "What a cutie."

Please post a comment.
But if you're gonna be a bitch about it, please keep your bitchy comments about ME. Because I don't give a damn, but some of the people I photograph might.

What a cutie.
I went with Agathe to see Batman: The Dark Knight. To be honest I think the whole film is a bit over hyped. The voice of Batman was beyond annoying. It would have been so much better if he just sounded like a man instead of a film trailer voice over. Heath Ledgers Joker was pretty darn good. Such a shame that he died just when he started doing really good films. The good always die young.

The good always die young?

But in photography, it seems like most of the really good ones are either still kicking or made it to ripe old ages.

Which is good for you, Mr. Boogie. You'll likely die of old age.

Adams was 82
Leibovitz is 59
Dorothea Lange was 70
Arbus was 48 (you've got me here, i admit)
Sebastião Salgado is 64
Helmut Newton was 84
Cartier Bresson was 94
and so on...

Maybe it's different for fashion photographers specifically, but when it comes to names that people think of when they think of photography, there seem to be a lot of people who did or have hit old age. I have no idea why.

My claim was directed mostly towards musicians and actors, I guess. Nick Drake, Heath Ledger, Marc Bolan, Kurt Cobain, River Phoenix, Jimi Hendrix, John Bonham, James Dean, Brandon Lee, Bruce Lee, Gram Parsons etc etc.
