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.

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

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...
I would not take this at face value, due to #6 being clearly incorrect.

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 resemble that remark.
