I'm not sure where this topic goes, but I thought it would surely be of interest on this forum . . . It's an article in yesterday's LA Times about a third-generation portrait photographer in today's India —a "minutero" street photographer— who still uses his grandfather's camera from (according to the article) the 1860's: http://www.latimes.com/news/nationworld/world/la-fg-india-lowtech2-2009sep02,0,4488845.story Here are a couple of interesting quotes by the 42 year-old Indian photographer in the article: "Digital cameras can never give such joy" [as the 150 year-old camera he's using today] "Computerization has made us lazy," he said. "Clicking pictures used to be an art. Now the thinking has disappeared and all they do is click a mouse."
