Comments04/02/2017 #1 Tony BrandstetterTalked to a good friend of mine, T has been my friend for over 30 years, we talk about everything under the sun. The second I mention my photography, he turns a silent ear and that is when I remember my friend Brody, who once said, "Tony, no one wants to see your art." Brody was right, even the artist on this site do not support each other. I guess it all goes back to the self absorbed society we have all become
Comments11/09/2016 #1 Gerald HechtVery nice; I remember as a kid (using my homemade darkroom in my parents basement; "playing around" with Infared film was a very powerful time...its been so long; I think Kodak made two such emulsions for 35mm; one may have been an echtachrome (?) and the other a tri-X variant. The color Echtachrome (slide) film, as I recall, could be home processed with the "Cibachrome E3 or maybe E4" protocols; I think I was the ten year old in my class who would spend an entire summer day in the basement, watching invisible heat turn into visible art...thanks for this; brings back powerful memories

- 01/08/2016Hello, My name is Tony Brandstetter, I am a photographer from Pittsburgh Pennsylvania, I just discovered this site and feel it is a great opportunity for artists to share their thoughts and dreams.
Comments02/08/2016 #28 Paul "Pablo" CroubalianToday, I had lunch with an old friend. At one point he mentioned that photography was not Art. After all, he said, the camera does all work. I thought of arguing the point, then I remembered this picture. Argument ended. It may be true that my snapshots are not Art. This ain't no snapshot.01/08/2016 #26 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#25 Dear Pamela, a cultivation of diversity, an appreciation of originality and a spectrum of artists depends on honouring original work and primary attribution to linked work - and that is not what Tumblr succeeded in doing though Tumblr became a calling port for artists, because there it was hard to distinguish between the makers and the takers of art. This is the spirit I welcome BeBee as an artist colony, and I think we are likeminded in this view, and the only difference I would state is artists as a living force rather than a museum - as artists rather than their objects or artifacts.01/08/2016 #24 CityVP 🐝 ManjitAny site that receives an influx of artists is going to be enriched by that inflow. Hives are good start point but eventually some form of curation would be welcome that elevates this community as distinct body would be welcome, and that all depends on what plans BeBee has for such a curation as an artist colony. Welcome to BeBee Tony.
