    I agree, I don't see anybody trying to force a direct correspondence between the two. We don't eat photochemicals

    I think we just need to ask why people are starting to find more value in slow/local/handmade/etc. Is it fad, is it nostalgia... or is it possible that people are actually starting to realize that art which can be banged out industrially by the thousand is inherently less valuable...?

    The idea of "Slow Art" has been around for a few years. It's all about the pace at which we create and consume art, and the commitment we make as artists and viewers. There are some very interesting ideas out there.

    Didn't we have somebody who accidentally made his morning coffee with sodium sulfite once? But I agree...we *generally* don't eat photochemicals. :-)

    The lady of the house has to be a pretty swell sort of person to put up with the annoyance of a photographer.

    there is plenty that has to do with photography that has nothing to do with slow.
    this isn't just true with smaller format cameras but larger ones too ...
    and while i see similarities between a crafted meal and a crafted image
    there are plenty of people that craft images that originated from a non-organic source ..
    maybe there are few compared to those whose images begin with an analog source ..

    i kind of agree with the whole amish perspective of photography as well, i wouldn't say it has
    to be slow, just arcane

    That's why Etsy is so popular

    Have any APUGers gone to Etsy.com ? I shopped for my girl friend there. Lots of hand made goodies. You could sell your work there too. I think the more digital and mass produced items out there, the greater the hunger for hand made items. There are photographers that sell inkjet prints there too, but I understand why folks are trying to make a few bucks during this lousy recession.
