That said, I think the long term trend is for analogue photographers to go back to the future and retrace the historical developments of photography. I think it will be super-fascinating, actually. Yes, there will be infrared plates that you can buy, there will be new sensitizers and some beautiful new inventions. And, most importantly, there will be more interest in those forms of analogue photography for which we have complete ownership of the photographic process from start to finish. Do you think you really "own" a process in which you push mass-produced film through a mass-produced camera and make a print on mass-produced paper? Uh, no you don't.... at least not in the way that Talbot et al owned their process. Yes, analogue is only going to get more interesting.
As I said elsewhere, I actually look forward to TEOTWATKI: The End Of The World As They Know It. "They" are those who go on and on about analogue, but who couldn't make an emulsion with a blender and a cracked egg to save their lives. Over the next few years, they will sob and whine every time some mass-produced film product is priced beyond their reach, and they will expect us to care when they ultimately decide to purchase one of those cameras. Meanwhile, the rest of us, confident in the ascending value of the individual craft, will calmly and resolutely continue to enjoy what we do... and find continued enjoyment by sharing our ideas and images with others.
