Interesting points, I'm always looking to keep grain to a minimum, I don't like it in my own work neven when I shoot 35mm.

I guess I also put the type of work Sagado shoots in context with the work of others working in that sector.
To me Salgado's images hold up well individually but together as a body of work become even stronger (as Bob Carnie says as well).
About 20 years ago I saw a major Exhibition of Don McCullin's work at the RPS Gallery in Bath (UK). 2 photographers were nit-picking very close up about the technique & quality of the images, they didn't care at all that the images were of staving Biafran's or dead and wounded soldiers, they were emotionally dead as humans.
