What’s Next

“For photography, maybe it’s about how photographers no longer have to self-censor or edit themselves because of analogue limitations, such as the number of frames on a roll of film or the cost of a sheet of film. The endlessness of digital capture is actually loosening photography up, and allowing it to be lots of different things, rather than simply a culmination or condensation of something.”
