Yes, viewing the real print adds a lot of value. Especially in this day and age where almost everything is a digital copy of something real.
I don’t agree with this analogy. An exhibition print of the Grand Canyon is still virtual as opposed to being there, as is a lithographic print, silk screen, inkjet, gravure, etc. Sometimes my students produce better representations of a negative image through scanning and inkjet printing than they do in the darkroom.
