Instead of the draw of traditional photography being something rooted in the sensibilities of the past, I just wish, for the life of me, we could win people over for its relevance and timeliness. Wouldn't that be great? Scrapping the word 'traditional' altogether might be a start! There's definitely a place for more traditional modes of practice (aesthetically speaking), some of which I like and own books of, but I feel that some classical full tonal range work comes with a false sense of purity of intent that insists 'this is photography'. Unfortunately, 99% of people disagree or... just don't give a sh!t. There has to be a moment when we accept that it's not everyone else that's crazy, it's us.
