    Just read an article about a photojournalist called Harry Benson, here's what he said:

    I can understand that coming from a photojournalist, but saying it about all photographers.... Guy annoys the fuck out of me with his attitude

    He's a photojournalist, they all think that way.

    I used to dodge and burn my film prints too, and that to me is just like adjusting lighting in photoshop. Harry probably wouldn't approve of that either.

    I'm going to enema urine into my ass and then spray it all over a canvas and call it artwork.

    Nobody gets to define what art is.

    Imagine that, a old school die hard film guy defending what he spent his whole life doing.

    Unpossible.

    Yea, he's a cunt. There were tons of post-shot manipulation techniques with film. His idealized view of the past is inaccurate. I could handle it if he was just an no-PP elitist, but he tries to justify his position with a bunch of bull shit.

    He has a right to defend it, but he's selectively embracing new technology and looking down on other forms of it.

    this.

    Adams is usually thought of as a photographer, but he himself considered most of his 'craft' to be in the darkroom.
