I have only posted this on Apug, but I have also sent the message to galleries that represent me here and abroad.
One response so far:
"This is absolutely the right move! And your analysis is spot on! The digital process has been very damaging to photography; it has nearly erased the hard won achievments of Stieglitz, Adams, and Weston. Indeed, it is my view that a new sucessionist movement is again timely and in order! I have rejected numerous requests to show digital prints in my gallery."
Anyway, I do welcome digital photographers at my workshops. As I do encourage painters to participate as well. I do not teach technical stuff. Instead I "focus" on content and image structure.
Digital cameras are wonderful teaching tools, just as Polaroid materials were when I learned photography myself 40 years ago.
Finally there indeed are amazing digital prints out there. However I have decided not to exhibit in galleries or shows where such prints are shown. Its a personal decision.
I will no longer "keep my options open." Life is too short for not following your beliefs 100% - my feeling at least.
All in good spirit, please!
