Having followed this thread, think about the following situation.

In some parts of the world people may have to go to the river for water. In that particular society, someone with an indoor water pump would be seen as affluent.

In global context though both subjects would probably have to be present in the image to get the point across.


understandable, but if the photographer can afford the camera and he is to shoot affluence then he should know that its all about money and take the photo accordingly.

I have to disagree. If you can afford a digital camera then you should know what afluence means.


The person taking the picture isn't necessarily part of the society being portrayed in the image.


Where does it say the image has to portray the photographer's point of view?

It doesn't but mterial wealth is just that and if the photographer can afford a digital camera then he show know what material wealth is and that IS the challenge. A guy in a desert hold a bottle of water is the richest man in that situation but put the same man in Beverly hills and he's nothing. Personally I don't believe he is anything in the desert either because that example does not convey material wealth.

It's very interesting to follow this thread and see how differently people read and interpret the word "Affluence"

In some people the word means excess even Gluttonous which is one of the deadly sins. All in all though it stirs a negative feeling in most people.

There seems to be 2 poles of opinion in the challenge entries, one is showing the said "Affluence" and the other deploring it. Aren't both valid?

What is your real feeling towards "Affluence" and what it represents? Would be interesting to know..

So would fat people not be gluttonous??? (not all fat people but the ones the order a Big Mac combo with a diet coke are the ones I'm refering to)

As for my feelings toward "Affluence"... I have everything I want need and can basically buy whatever else I need, want or crave. Not to brag but I really don't need as much as I got which is why I'm constantly help people financially that are in need. Where I lack is in the emotional aspect of life but on that note I could care less.

In the context of that society it would. ;oP -- I'm not going to convince you to think outside the context of the most affluent neighbourhood in the US and your not going to convince me to narrow my view to only think in that context. -- end of discussion, we disagree

I am beginning to agree with those that say that threads like this - posted whilst voting is ongoing- are meant to influence voters, intentionally or not IMHO. Why can't you just wait till voting is finished?

Finally, A voice of reason. Someone from the SC listening?

Just as posting challenge entries before voting completion is a no-no, discussing voting and interpretations during the voting stage should also be discouraged.

Disclaimer: I didnt enter this challenge.
