Brooklyn Beckham released a photography book and everyone is mercilessly mocking it


When your parents are Posh and Becks, it's highly likely that doors of opportunity open for you much more easily than for others.

Take Brooklyn Beckham, the eldest son of David and Victoria, for example. He's releasing a photography book called 'what I see', at the age of 18. A huge achievement for any teenager, regardless of their background.

The teen's debut, a coffee table book capturing shots of his glamorous life, is released on Penguin Random House next week.

The photos include his sister Harper colouring, his brother Romeo at holding flowers, his Mum Victoria posing behind a Posh Spice mask and lots of arsty mirror selfies.

Some shots however, aren't quite as professional as you may expect from a published author.

Alice Jones, the arts editor of the i Paper, tweeted two pictures from the book with the caption: "Huge fan of Brooklyn Beckham's terrible photographs and even worse captions."

People reacted accordingly, calling ou what they believed was an example of privilege.

Others defended him, using it as the perfect excuse for some photography puns.

Not everyone is a critic: HeatWorld described him as "GREAT at photography, like really bloody great" and lots of people thought the nay sayers should leave him alone and just let him enjoy his hobby.

Francesca Dow, Managing Director of Penguin Random House Children's, 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.

Teenagers lives are filled with the visual image and we know Brooklyn's photos resonate with his huge young following, who avidly follow his life through his photography. We are proud to bring these images together in a book for a young generation for the first time. 

At Penguin Random House we publish a wide range of voices for all kinds of readers.

Brooklyn, who regularly fills his Instagram with arty-shots plans to study photography at University from September.
