Would Jean-Baptiste Gustave Le Gray have embraced Photoshop had it been available in his time?
“The contemplation of things as they are, without error or confusion, without substitution or imposture, is in itself a nobler thing than a whole harvest of invention”
No he would have been a charter member of APUG. Le Gray is a Jerry Uelsmann type who btw still uses analogue material but is knowledgeable in the digital arts. In all likelihood not even Rejlander would use photoshop.
Wrong forum for this kind of question.
