Use Your Words with Alan Shapiro


A Plea to Photographers: Use Your Words with Alan Shapiro. Photographers at Google

It's long been said that a picture is worth a thousand words. Other sources say put the worth at ten thousand. 

A character in Ivan S.Turgenev's novel Fathers and Sons said: ""The drawing shows me at one glance what might be spread over ten pages in a book."" 

(Unfortunately we're not sure whether the character is referring to 10 pages in a university post graduate textbook or "Green Eggs and Ham" so it's hard to map on the ""picture worth x"" continuum) No matter; it's clear to everyone that pictures are worth a lot of words...more so as GenX, GenY and Millenials are eclipsed by ""GenA.D.D.""

But what about words AND pictures? Might the worth be exponentially greater? Alan Shapiro believes their value together goes far beyond either individually and will share his point of view on why photographers should seriously consider evolving their written storytelling ability especially now as social media experiences like Google+ are more important than ever.
