    Hi Robert,


    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!

    Agreed, wholeheartedly: here's to limiting one's options in accordance with one's own beliefs!

    If you don't want to show at certain galleries, for whatever reason, then don't. Why do we need a declaration?

    Same could be said of f/64, but... it worked out pretty well for them, no?

    Its healthy to hear comments...

    - especially if they are in opposition to one's own viewpoints.
    I for one appreciate everyone's take on this...

    Thank You!

    Am a bit reluctant to get too drawn into this discussion - my workflow is dr5 reverse processed 120 film, prints (not many of 'em!) are usually Lambda prints from hi-res scans that are Photoshopped only to match the original transparency as closely as possible.

    The reason I am posting to this thread is to say I had a wee look at your website , wow, stunning work. Bet the prints look amazing.

    Cheers,
    Gavin

    I think you're absolutely right, Per.
    If we don't like to hear opinions, other views, differing thoughts, why (to paraphrase c6h6o3) do we need to be in a discussion forum?

    I still don't share, oppose even, the opinion that the way something is created matters much.
