Each new advance in technology brings with it gains and losses. What have new digital technologies meant to the ways in which photographers frame their vision? When the subject is war or the depiction of modern life, does film or digital manipulation better interpret reality? Photographers who continue to stand by the superiority of film talk with photographers and artists whose form is determined by the new digital possibilities.
