I agree. It is one thing to be remembered for a photograph of a non staged event that influenced the alteration of the course of history, that changed a perception, a bias or a policy, etc...and quite another to be remembered for a photograph that was popularized either because of the beauty of its subject or because it was relentlessly marketed...or both.
I would much rather being remembered for a project, for a series of photographs or for a style than for a single photograph...no matter how good it was.
But that's me.
Oh, and the above photograph is of an orang asli, a member of the "original people" or "first people" who live in Malaysia. Will I be remembered for this photograph? I hope not.
