I was in Paris recently, and I met some friends of my sister, one of them, I found out, is married to a professional photographer. We exchanged some short photographic chit-chat, and I told him that, although I only brought my digital camera to Paris, I do at least half of my photography with analogue materials. He told me that his wife works also with analogue photography too, and that she is noticing a resurgence of film requests, clients increasingly expressly ask her for analogue material. Her work is mainly digital, but analogue still has a niche, and that niche is growing.

I take this as another indication that analogue photography touched bottom and is now slowly bouncing. It would be very sad if Kodak exited the scene now, but there's a life beyond Kodak anyway.
