A: When it’s stuck on a hard-drive, phone or other device that stores just ones and zeros!
Film and prints have a proven track record of longevity, but even so how often do you look through your old photographs… My Dad’s slides, barely saw the light of day after he died, so I’ve been trying to rectify that. I made a book with a decade’s worth of my childhood for Mum last Christmas.
This Christmas I printed one of my favourites (from 1966) and had it framed… it is just too beautiful not to see on a daily basis.
You will be surprised how much better photographs look when properly printed. Screens are unforgiving, but even slightly blurry or grainy shots have depth and character when printed on fine-art paper, nicely mounted and framed… give it a go :)
