There is a popular sentiment in business mentoring these days that says failure is merely a milestone on the way to success. Eric Reis' "Lean Startup" concept is built on the foundation of failing – and failing fast.
As with all rules, there are exceptions. The Syria print sale is among them: failure is the end station rather than a stop along the way. There won't be a continuation of the sale.
The prints are on their way back to the David and Gina. I know that David will be offering his for sale at Paris Photo next week.
I'm grateful to both for agreeing to help.
