im well aware that kodak was a gigantic polluter and has since cleaned up their act
( although their campus is a white elephant because of all the toxins )
what i was getting at was that since the first photographs made through chemical means
plenty of people have had health problems ( to say the least ) because of whatever process
or materials were used at the time ... and while analoggers want to always point the finger
and say how terrible electronic photography is, how the landfill is filled with
old cameras and printers and media involved with it, they forget the legacy of chemical photography
whether it is upfront-user based or back end, materials-based.
what i was getting at is both sides have a pretty bad record ...
