Pandemonium in Paris

As reported in Lens Culture at the gala opening night preview of Paris Photo at Carrousel du Louvre thousands of anonymous vintage photos were dumped into a giant pile, scattered about, and thrown around while the protesters shouted "free, free, free!" The subversive act of giving away free and potentially precious photographs in the face of photo art market hullabaloo is a fantastic act. I totally commend their action and would love to see more such statements reminding people of the truth behind value.
