Gentle agitation every five minutes.
I will never going to be dragged into a film versus digital dispute.
I like film as a hobby and I use digital for work. They are different mediums and if a simple iPhone shot makes it for you, that’s good or If you like using a 8×10 camera, that’s also good.
I believe that photography, as a creative and expressive discipline, is above the medium.
As I see it, photography can’t be tied down to the “pureness” of film or to the modernity of digital.
A pinhole has as much value as an Instagram because all it counts is the image facing us. The moment we see it. It touches us, or not. It moves us, or not, but, that’s it. That’s really it.
Michelangelo made his own paint and it toke him forever to paint the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel.
Pollock bought paint by the gallons and could finish a huge painting in a week.
Which one is more “art”? Which one is “better”?
I can even go further. Which one is more true to painting as a discipline?
As photography spectators it’s wrong to deny a certain type of work just because we don’t feel personal empathy for the medium.
Photography, as a discipline, floats above any dispute about the medium.
Please forgive my poor English.
