ASX.TV: Doug Rickard – “The Photography of Doug Rickard” (2012)

  1. we are all cameras from a different point of view…Doug attaches the longest of telephoto lenses to his camera and feels the color and personality of a distance…in a painterly sensitive production.

  2. How exactly is this art?  It seems like nothing more than lazy street photography to me. Does he even have permission from Google to use these images?  According to the Google Maps TOS: “2.
