“Photography is a complex and fluid medium, and its many factors are not applied in simple sequence. Rather, the process may be likened to the art of the juggler in keeping many balls in the air at one time!”
Ansel Adams, from the introduction to The Negative - The New Ansel Adams Photography Series / Book 2
I love film as much as the next guy, and I totally understand that there's a slightly defensive atmosphere regarding film vs digital, however.....
I think that maybe some of those slogans might be off-putting or perhaps a bit like a comeback against digital photographers, or a private in-joke that only photographers will understand (I'm an amateur and I don't know the names mentioned above).
In the spirit of suggesting another slogan or two that promotes without alienating, and also informs, how about:
Where film still lives (alternate: Where film still rules; shorter alt: Where film lives/rules)
Negatives and Slides and Prints, oh my!
Film users, unite!
(just a few suggestions, take 'em or leave 'em).
