Dr. Greg's Historical & Modern Photography
'The last century has seen the development of
photography, and photographic process [become]
one of the most important means of making visual
records that has ever been known. Today available
to all the world and so common and so cheap that
it is taken as a matter of course and without
thought, photography has become as integral a
part of our actual life as printing (with which
socially and economically it is so closely allied). It
is hardly overstating the case to say that it has
brought about an even greater revolution in our
visual knowledge and practice than printing did in
our verbal knowledge and practice.' William M.
Ivins, Jr. - 1929
This statement from 1929 is more true today than then. My friend and colleague Ira has bugged me about blogging more. He's right I should do that. OK let's see if I can work it into my day.
