WIN: A signed copy of Brooklyn Beckham's 'What I See'
It’s fair to say that Brooklyn Beckham’s debut book, What I See has had a mixed reception, but here at Future we’re not about negativity, especially where young people are concerned.
Digital picture editor at Vogue, Alastair Nicol doesn't understand why there has been such a backlash, speaking to Miss Vogue, he said: "Yes, his parents are celebrities, as he and his brothers are now in their own right. You don’t see Mary McCartney getting disrespected for her father’s fame, nor Sascha or Fenton Bailey being chastised for following in their father’s footsteps."
"He’s an 18-year-old boy, he’s pursuing his passion and he’s getting attention for it – I think there are some elements within his photographs which will grow and develop (excuse the pun), and he’s learning still. I think it takes a lot of confidence to be 18 and put your work out to the world, I certainly wouldn’t have done it at his age.
In an open letter, the BBC's arts editor Will Gompertz told Brooklyn: "The snide remarks being made about your work are cheap and self-serving. Ignore them."
Here at Future we are about supporting and encouraging young people, whoever your parents may be - so you won’t be seeing any negative criticism from us!
