David Hockney on the Camera’s Failings
My ears perked-up when I saw this clip from Robert Hughes’ “The New Shock of the New” in which he visits David Hockney in his studio. Hughes is predictably grumpy about the state of modern art, and justifiably so, I’d say, but he finds four artists who are fighting the good fight and one of them’s Hockney.
Hockney talks about what the camera can’t capture, which reminded me of my other online project: unphotographable.
