Keeping the craft of traditional photography in the classroom
APU's, I am a new member. I am writing a paper on why the craft of traditional photography should be taught in the art curriculum and kept in our creative classrooms. I am a pinhole photographer, trained in contemporary practices but found my way to medium and large format film working early on. I make my own cameras, obviously, shooting on paper and film and have taught my art pupils this process. Your thoughts on the craft of photography and the importance of it today and why it should be taught would be very much appreciated.
