Yay or Nay? Brooklyn Beckham's photography book "What I See"

Amidst controversial (and snide) critics, what is your take on Brooklyn's book?
Reading time 2 minutes

He made his photography debut with Burberry when he shot the Burberry Brit fragrance campaign and now, Brooklyn Beckham has launched his first ever photography book.

Launched last month, his photography book "What I See" is a compilation of snapshots through Brooklyn's eyes, which includes various photos of his family, The Beckhams, and snaps from his travels around the world.

Essentially, it is a book that shows you an inside look at the Beckham's world. Would you want to take that step in?

Yay or Nay?

Amidst the launch of the book, many had jumped on the bandwagon to judge Brooklyn for his "privileged" connections aka his parents David and Victoria.

That was quickly followed by comments by editors around the world including GQ, Vogue, Elle and Dazed, which all are supportive of his endeavour.

After all, Rome wasn't built in a day and certainly weren't David Bailey, Avedon and the likes of them. In fashion, we just need to look to Stella McCartney as the prime example.

She is the descendant of Paul McCartney but that didn't stop her from stepping out of his father's shadow.

In the words of Brooklyn's publisher Penguin Random House, "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."

So, the key message we got hetre is "Give the lad a chance and cut him some slack!". Who knows, he might be the next Avedon in the making?

The verdict? Let's give Brooklyn a big fat "Yay" for his debut.
