    Kodak Before the Demolition

    Obvious, I disagree with this photographers' idea (and subsequent book) about the death of analogue photography. However, a number of his photos inside Kodak Canada, Polaroid and Ilford are pretty interesting. At least he shot a lot on 4x5 film. The chemical mix room (#12) is my favorite but it should be in B&W.

    Once a photographer is convinced that the camera can lie and that, strictly speaking, the vast majority of photographs are "camera lies," inasmuch as they tell only part of a story or tell it in a distorted form, half the battle is won. Once he has conceded that photography is not a "naturalistic" medium of rendition and that striving for "naturalism" in a photograph is futile, he can turn his attention to using a camera to make more effective pictures.

    What a shame...

    And how did frames #14 and #18 from Mobberley make it into a piece about the Death of Film?

    The story talks about how Burley has also been documenting how the smaller alternatives to what was once a huge industry have also sprung up - essentially he is trying to document the transformation.

    Maybe he should have titled it "The Transformation of Film?"

    Or "The Rebirth of Film?"

    Death is kinda' permanent...

    I suppose, as an artist, we're fooled into believing he has the gift of foresight. On the other hand, maybe he's read too many APUG threads. Hopefully the series will look as misjudged in 10 years as it does boring now.

    All you have to do is drive down the street from here to the "recycling" dropoff where there are
    mountains of obsolete computer and electronics stuff to justify the theme, "Digital is Dead". And
    several photojournalists have already made monographs of that very subject - hope they're using
    film so they don't have to replace cameras every two years! We should just go out and compute the
    net volume of the respective boneyards. All the unusable film cameras in the world probably wouldn't
    add up to even a month's recycling intake of electronics in any significant city in this country.
