Museum shutterbugs fail to 'see' the art

Full story: The Reporter

Some arts journalists have recently commented on it, and I'm not sure when I first noticed it.

Brilliant article, in a world of instant gratification, pausing is not popular sadly

We had the same experience this summer in some of the museums in Italy and Greece, including the Vatican Museums and the National Archeological Museum in Athens. What's worse are those who use their cameras to take video clips.

Too bad that museum management refuse to ban private photography in their facilities. Visitors can purchase far better images at the museum's book & gift shop.

I appreciate Richard Bammer's column, but not all museum goers with cameras opt out of "seeing" the art.
My child and I visited the Crocker recently to view the Andy Warhol exhibit. We both love art and it was a memorable day. She decided to take a few photos but was stopped by a security person. No big deal, but she only wanted a few for her collection.
She's a student, and couldn't afford the $12 Warhol post cards in the gift shop.
