    Yes, I've noticed this as well. When they did a landscape feature about a year ago, they featured three photographers shooting film LF, and one guy shooting 35mm, maybe who had switched to digital if I remember correctly.

    I like to point this out to my digital friends. Just to annoy them a little

    As James said, B&W ads blend well with the contents of the magazine. I can't imagine color glossy Epson, HP or Canon ads in the magazine. It has always had a certain elegance that would be compromised severely. B&W using color ink? That's scary.

    If I find a pixelgraph interesting and moves me, then the process involved does not really matter. I think that is why Lenswork has done a pretty good job of presenting digital portfolios. The quality of the work and subject matter are what is important.

    So from a purely artistic and creative point of view I will live with the change. In retrospect, the two things I like most about B&W is the presentation of work by many photographers from the past who I have never heard of. For example the work of Lou Stouman in issue #36. I also think they do an outstanding job of presenting in depth articles on the history and variious movements of photography. Articles on groups such as the Visual Dialogue Foundation, American Bauhaus, Analoge Photography Users Group, American Modernists as well as specific features on work and history overseas. And in what other magazine do the advertisements sometimes equal the regular content. I guess some issues I could buy it just for the articles alone. (Kind of like Playboy.)
