    Only I say if american president invites you to a ball at whitehouse , you must spend to suit and codes and traditions.

    That mcurry ran to india to shoot another poor indian villager photograph. And americans felt and prayed to their state how advanced and rich they are. This poor man photography of national geographic stinks.
    His Indians doesnt seem to escape from 1920s New Yorker magazine covers Their teeths are worse than a donkey. He doesnt need to posterize that. Their a anonym here saying he does not touch soap and water means he doesnt touch the his countries sensitive subjects. When he is in america , he founds de niro interesting , nothing else and he runs to india to Show old men teeths to the World. Asshole.
    Thanks to the Japanese and the Germans, the people in your country aren't at the ape stage anymore. Without them you'd still be walking without shoes and photography would mean to carve rocks with sticks in a cave. Without a the advanced countries, mustafa, I'm not even sure you'd know what it means to brush teeth. No, really.

    please learn a bit about history and then refrain from such statements.

    Turkey was an advanced country long before we in Europe decided we were advanced and even longer before the US as we know it existed.

    You forgot to add 3 little words to your post "In my opinion..." LOL

    It is said that we remember the important things, if true, why photograph? I forget, so I photograph.

    Stop stop stop!
    Since we’ve gone a little bit too far, on my opinion, from my original post, just 2 lines to recap:
    - I’ve met Steve McCurry at the inauguration of his exhibition in Siena, here in Tuscany where I live.
    - I had the opportunity of a brief interview for a local magazine I work for.
    - For my curiosity I added some questions about film photography: he told me what you can read, that he doesn’t use film anymore.
    When I heard that, I thought it was news, but not for everybody (in fact I didn’t write about that in the article for the ‘general’ magazine), but especially for a community of film lovers like APUG.
    So, I didn’t have any particular intention but to inform you that a famous photographer (no doubt about that, and not only in the USA: I saw a crowd of Italian students around him begging for an autograph) after many years has decided not to use film anymore.
    That’s a fact and I couldn’t have my head in the sand (I’ve read that “threads like this... ”) and I decided to inform you. Many comments that I’ve read have gone far beyond, in the field of the ‘clash of civilizations’, I’d say, and this wasn’t of course my intention. I repeat it: I just wanted to inform you. Plain and simple. At this point, everyone can make his choice. For example, that doesn’t impress me much and I will continue shooting film (my fridge is full of film, I use my film cameras of every format every time that I go out) and always will. Of course, I think that having a famous testimonial (like McCurry could be) would be a good thing for the diffusion of analog photography love. But we’ll found others, no doubt.
    Good light (and good film!) to everybody!

    It saddens me to see this place getting more like photo.net every day...

    Not that I approve of NB23's disparaging remarks about Turkey.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

I still see his posts on craigslist every so often trolling for fresh interns to work for free, thinking they might learn something, but probably scanning film all day.
    There are rare bragging rights that accrue from such an internship. Less famous photographers rely on such interns. Also, it is much cheaper for the intern than most colleges and photographic schools. After all, McCurry is seeking interns, not students for expensive workshops.
