Gallery culture?

Badger’s critique of the culture of art gallery practice is more cogently and more thoroughly carried out in other essays. But the notion of the ‘quiet photograph’ introduces the intriguing suggestion that there can be a photography outside of the photographer’s own strident voice, … his determinedly expressive voice..

This essay does not strike me as one of Badger’s best. I prefer several of the others in the collection The Pleasures of Good Photographs. But it is this essay which has set up echoes that stay with me in the silence, when I am out with my camera.
