My concern is not so much with the profession or the industry. It lies in the esthetic. Photographs are physical objects. They age, they yellow, they wear…and each step changes the physical object. Think of a country song with a yellowing photograph on the wall, or a angst ridden young wife tearing up those of an old sweetheart. Photographs have surface and form. They are objects. A fingerprint, a tear…each adds to the authenticity and the presence of the print. They say God is the Greatest Artist. He creates patina. He creates rough edges, wrinkles and memories. The photographer is but the first step in creating a picture, not the last. Pictures grow with age, they change with age. Digital photographs don’t.
