Creative Inspiration: How to Become a Genius

2017-08-16

In the words of photographer Lisette Model, "Photography is the easiest art, which perhaps makes it the hardest", the art photography realm does prove to be such a difficult game to win. It is not like painting, which would require pigment, brush tools, and canvas. A camera, and maybe a roll of film is all that you'd usually need to 'paint' a picture in photography. An easy art indeed, but it is painful to become a master art photographer. It is beyond skill -- in photography, imagination and ideas are more important.

So, how does one become a genius, say like, Diane Arbus, Irving Penn, Man Ray, Richard Avedon or Dorothea Lange? Unfortunately, there is no precise answer; just a breakdown of what makes one. The School of Life deconstructs the meaning of 'genius', a vague notion applicable to all fields requiring creativity and imagination, with some good advice in becoming one.
