I got one of those emails the other day that makes you shake your head and wonder. It reminded me of a couple of others I’ve received over the past few years.
Here’s one from 2006 sent by a student (so claimed):
jon,I am writing to say I attend the Rhode Island Schoolof Phototography and am also a amatuer [sic] photographerlike yourself. I was wondering does your teacher tellyou that your pictures are too “cliche”? I take thesame type pictures and thats [sic] what I have been getting.sincerely,
Is there a Rhode Island School of Photography? I’ve never heard of it. Maybe it’s run out of a small office down the hill from Brown and perpetually in the shadow of the Rhode Island School of Design? Maybe it’s a spoof from a friend? If so it’s two years later and no one has ever fessed up.
I’ll save the others for another post.
