There's a really excellent piece on The Photography Cliché over on Martin Parr's Blog. Interesting and insightful I think its something worth reading, student, master or otherwise.
Can't say I agree with all of what Mr Parr is saying as I think we all take from someone or something that has gone before and can adapt our own way of thinking from it, it's a bit like mixing two colours to make a new one if you like.

Anyway, its all a little deep for today. If we all shared Mr Parrs view we would never go out with a camera for fear of being unoriginal. But thats just my view, oh and Martin Parr is himself a Photography Cliché.
