I'll let APhotoEditor tell the story. And they link back to the Guardian article. Bottom line: a 7-year-old is going to be exhibiting photographs at the prestigious Brighton Photo Biennial...except that there's more to the story than meets the eye, involving a famous father and something about a work visa. And further collaboration from a certain cannily open-minded curator we all know.
(Although I always enjoy "APhotoEditor" when I visit, I must say I was surprised at the reactionary tone of some of the early comments. I mean, referring to Alec Soth as "Sloth"? That would never fly around here. I didn't read very deep into the comments.)
Incidentally, and this is apropos, my two most recent book purchases were this and this. I think I'm going to buy this too, to go with them, just to make myself good and depressed. (Where's Ralph Steiner when you need him?) More about the new acquisitions after I've spent more time with them.
(Thanks to numerous tipsters)
