I certainly understand Voidoid's point, but I think awareness of 'boring' photographs from alternative processes and ULF is more acute because the folks who use them rarely fail to acknowledge what they are. Small, medium or 4x5 large format silver printmakers may not cite the process or the equipment as often because they're so ubiquitous, even though their results may be no better than what's being decried here.

Seeing the work of Cy DeCosse recently (platinum prints, photogravure, and gum dichromate) reminded me of just how glorious some of these alt processes can be. I think I'll stick with judging each photograph or group of photographs on their own merit regardless of the way they were made.
