    Seems to me that a "purist" printing approach is mainly for the benefit of the printer. The viewer doesn't know what was done unless things are carried too far. Or the printer tells the viewer what his process is in an attempt to influence him. A big factor is how you print concerning light/dark and hard/soft. Sometimes things carried to extremes work well. But personally I think that a strong image printed in a matter of fact way is best. A print that causes least attention to the printing. And I guess you could extend that to photographing in a way that uses the least drama.

    I'd say so although 'require' would have been a better
    choice of word. I think it is all a matter of establishing
    borders and working within those. I'm working toward
    prints which are representative of the subject and
    avoid impressionistic impulses. Not easy when
    working with material brought in from
    THE DEEP DARK WOODS. Dan
