“With the massification of digital media, the internet “expert” becomes more common than ever. It is not within the sole domain of dentistry, but rather a privilege of all areas: health professionals know about law, lawyers are keen on engineering, physicians understand what architects do, engineers are familiar to medicine and so on. We are experiencing a revolution in teaching, teachers training is increasing at extraordinary speeds and there is no longer the need for deeper understanding about certain topics. Masters and doctorates are obsolete. The secret is simple: the more we know about photography, the better teachers we become. And, more often than not, we don’t even need to show our work: just show the pictures of our ceramist’s work.”
