Somethings that are old are new again. Clothing styles, city dwellings, and this time it would seem impossible but film is having a resurgence. Will it replace digital? Probably not. But there again we thought digital would wipe out film.
In a day and age where pictures fail to make it to paper and where they reside inside phones and computers and of course the cloud which you never see it is nice and refreshing to see film and paper making it back into the hands of more than a small number of people’s hands.
I mean there may be hope for true photographers yet. Now I am not saying that people who use phones to take pictures they will never look at and never hang on a wall are not photographers.
Perhaps phoneorgaphers can learn something about the true aesthetic value of prints on a wall and the turning of pages in a book.
