I was just curious about the current "fine art" photography gallery market since I am not near any well known galleries. I'm also wondering how digital will affect this market. So, my questions are:
1- Is the current market now 70% traditional 30% digital? or 70% digital and 30% traditional?
2- Is there currently a major difference in price between a fine traditional print and say an iris print?
3- Will the fine art market eventually crave traditional handcrafted photography and sell digital prints as if they are nothing more than nice 'posters'?
I am not sure about 1&2, but for 3 I believe the demand for fine traditional prints will increase as the digital market grows. This would really hit the digital crowd hard, if and when their work is no longer valued...
