Using the word 'modernity' in this context needs some definition please because the word has a specific meaning and I'm not sure it's what you think it is. (apologies if I'm wrong).
If you mean that film photographers typically don't deal with the 'modern' world and digital photographers do I'd question such a broad-brush statement.

If there was to be some serious research carried out using images on Flickr there would undoubtedly be a massive correlation between 'film' tags and a lack of reference to modernity in the images.
