i don't know exactly what you mean ...
a sensor isn't light sensitive, an image isn't drawn with light ?
having a cellphone image light jet printed
through a sophisticated enlarger head
onto light sensitive paper and souped in chemistry
at a mini lab isn't drawn with light ?
its like suggesting slides aren't authentic ...
i don't think authenticity has much to do with it ...
it is just a different technology ... one isn't more authentic or photographic than the other ..
This isn't a question of right or wrong, good or evil, etc. It's about using the medium that helps you do what you want to do.
