Exactly............though I might say "not as valuable," as opposed to "not as great." After all, Per said that this is a decision he has made to prevent his work from being devalued.....
What's being devalued? Do these guys that shriek if there's a print in a medium they disapprove of also police EVERY image in the gallery to be sure someone hasn't gotten a photograph that just simply sucks admitted even if its the 'correct' medium? I doubt it. To me, thats far more important than what type of print someone is using...but the OP and those who defend him don't care about the image, its all about the technique. That's sad, and it devalues art far more than any 'bad' print medium because it makes artistic photography look empty and meaningless compared to the work of painters, sculptors, and others who actually have something substantive to say with their work.
Fine Art Photography of Indiana and other places no one else photographs.
