[..] let us now proceed to the analysis of the main types of photographer, who fall within eight main groups:
1. Button-Pressers,
2. Gadget Fetishists,
3. Hit-or-Miss Optimists,
4. Theoretical, Technical and Gadget Dabblers,
5. One-Operation Experts
6. Stunt-Merchants and Imitators,
7. Pseudo-Photographers and Arty-Crafties,
8. Expert Craftsmen-Technicians - John Erith

At the present time, photographs have a far wider appeal than modern art, much of which is unintelligible and meaningless, except to a few aesthetes. - John Erith
