TIME Magazine: on the future of digital and film photography

Some things to consider about film and digital...

"...something has changed so radically that we need to talk about it differently, think of it differently and use it differently." Stephen Mayes

"...Fujifilm, Kodak, Ilford Photo and Lomography all witnessed a film revival that was unexpected considering the earlier sharp decline. The reason seems clear: “If there is a resurgence,” Jonckheer at Kodak notes, “it’s really driven by the younger photographers,” and almost every company echoes this claim."
