Rejection ...

... from an important and subversive photographer I greatly respect, after sending an invitation to add his voice to the www.ishotkatemoss.com collage, particularly relevant given that he used to be - in his words - part of fashion's "swirling narcissistic world":

"to give notice  whether  symbolically negative or positive is to signify…….  my comment on the property is not to.,,,,, so it is significant that i remain in the   outer banks of concern,,,

                                                                        the answer is no…."

We here at ishotkatemoss, of course, agree that this (our) "culture", as represented by kate - its apparently inextinguishable flame - requires no form of validation.

Using what is put in front of us continually in order to create a message through interpretation of her, the work of those that use her and the way we see the ever-changing representation of her and us (as participants, consumers and viewers) is the point.

By not shining a light onto it, iskm is scared that only the supposedly positive signals are sent out into our ever looking world. So while I completely respect the individual's decision to not signify, someone has to hold up the carnival house of mirrors ...
