Brooklyn Beckham Is Getting Slated For His Photography Book : 'What I see' Book cover


Brooklyn Beckham, well known for having rather famous parents, is trying to carve a possible career path through the photography world but not everyone is happy about it.

The reason for this is that Brooklyn has recently launched a photography book titled 'What I See' but not everyone agrees his images are book worthy and don't get the masses started on his use of punctuation and correct grammar, or lack thereof. 

Even though the book is currently a number 1 best seller over on Amazon UK, and there will probably plenty of fans lining the streets at his book signings, many have criticised the content of the book and have used the power of social media to share their annoyance. 

Alice Jones, Arts Editor of the iPaper, said on Twitter: "Huge fan of Brooklyn Beckham's terrible photographs and even worse captions." Others shared photos of elephants, a theme from the book, with one Twitter user writing 'These guys managed it...'.

Receiving criticism isn't something that's new to the young Beckham as a few years back when he shot a fashion campaign for Burberry, quite a bit of negative comment came his way from the photography community. 

Some have, however, come out in his defence saying things such as: 'He's a teenager having fun with a camera, leave him alone," and the book publisher, Penguin told the Independent: "What I See is a book for teenagers, by a teenager, which gives Brooklyn's fans broader insight into his world seen through his unique and creative perspective."

Perhaps it's a 'damned if you do, damned if you don't' situation as it can't be easy trying to find a career path that allows you to shine on your own merits, rather than those of your famous parents when you, too, are often stood in the spotlight. However, we can also see how it has advantages, some of which ordinary photographers would have to work incredibly hard to receive.

Bruce Willis's daughter also got polarized reviews for her photos - its always going to be hard to be known for you and not the the child of your famous parents. A name change is sometimes a good plan there.
