Where’s the EXIF info?

When visiting a highbrow type of photography gallery such as Aperture (see my previous post about the Aperture 2017 Summer Open exhibit), what’s sadly missing is any information about what camera and other gear was used to take the pictures. Among this crowd, it’s considered uncouth to talk about your gear.

In most cases, even if you go to the photographer’s website, there’s still no information about gear. I am sure they teach them to hide their EXIF info at the Yale School of Art.

Most of the photos look like they could have been taken with a Canon Rebel and a kit lens. (Except for Jon Henry’s 4×5 large format photos. Their depth of field is too shallow to be a Canon Rebel kit lens.)
