Digital prints...

We talk about this subject matter all the time - yet do nothing about it.
I have decided to take a stand, even if it hurts in my pocket!


From January 2011 I will no longer be part of exhibits where digital prints are shown.

For years I have thought about this and have finally come to the conclusion that digital prints lower the value of photography in general.
They also tend to bring down the prices of hand made prints.

Like Ralph Gibson, a well known American photographer in New York, I believe that digital imaging has not yet produced any unique master pieces.
Until then - in my mind at least - digital prints are irrelevant and are only suited for graphic arts and for less serious photography.
Therefore - from January of next year - my photographs will only show in exhibits featuring hand made processes.

For me I believe this is the right decision at the present time.
