There's certainly a heritage of image making linked with formats, which may have a consequence on the images we make ourselves? I'm not sure we can switch off to that, seeing as we're always conscious of the 'tool' we use as photographers and what can and has been done with our particular tool. I make a different kind of image on the Hasselblad than with smaller formats for instance and I don't think it's just about the square. Upon buying the camera, I began to look at Hasselblad photographers and still do. There definitely seems to be a culture connected to cameras in this way, that may even have a bearing on our stylistic and subjective concerns. Every photographer's goal is surely to develop their own concerns, but I think these are the formative experiences that guide our developing eye and craft.
