If you’re interested in being the best photographer you can possibly be then you must read this piece by Finnish photographer Arno Rafael Minkkinen that appears on the blog PetaPixel. (That’s one of Minkkinen’s amazing images.)
The article is a from a lecture he gave to the graduating class of 2006 at the New England School of Photography in Boston, MA.
Minkkinen lives in the United States and is the Nancy Donahue Professor of Art at the University of Massachusetts Lowell.
