The factory in Switzerland also makes some nice inkjet papers, which are quite easy to get hold of (in Europe, at least). They are branded as Ilford, as they have the right to do that for what are regarded as colour materials. That apparently is why Harman's line of inkjet papers, made in the UK, is branded Harman.
I agree, but it's a crappy way for people to live. Investment companies are only interested in shuffling papers around, what happens if the investment company wakes up and finds that Ilford Imaging can make them a quick little profit if they sell the scrap metal and the real estate? People made better wealth in the past by employing people and making products than the robber barons of this century are making corporate raids. The people of the industrialized world deserve the financial instability we have now because we have let the giant corporate culture evolve. The people in developing counties deserve what they WILL get when the same corporations forsake them. Hopefully we will have a giant solar storm and everybody will be directly responsible for their own needs and welfare. Corporate savvy and paper shuffling will have no value then....EC
I'm with you EC, it might be interesting to watch an investment banker trying to buy food or water with worthless money.
No escaping it!
I must step on fallen leaves
to take this path
This is not Ilford Photo, but it is the company responsible for Ilfochrome.
Prepare to see Ilfochrome raw materials skyrocket. Ultimately, out of reach to everybody...
Shareholders behind the firm(s) will be rubbing their hands with glee at the expected profit returns, until at least the world looses interest in Ilfochrome and suddenly pfff— ... no more returns. Isn't it curious than investment company here in Australia owned by two general practitioners was one of the less-palatable reasons why Australia's best Ilfochrome lab — ChromaColour — went bust?
“The photographer must determine how he wants the finished print to look before he exposes the negative.
Before releasing the shutter, he must seek 'the flame of recognition,' a sense that the picture would reveal
the greater mystery of things...more clearly than the eyes see." ~Edward Weston, 1922.
