->> In an age where everything has been done, and there really isn't anything that is original anymore; I think original black and white art will become the new (old) collectible art. In a world where photoshop altered images are rampant, and color is everywhere, I, and probably others as well; yearn for art that has integrity that does not feel contrived. Yes I know that in black and white, especially original art; there is a lot of dodging and burning and so on. But there is still a sense of integrity in the image.
I believe that as time marches on, this integrity will become something sought after by art collectors.
Ha... my 11 piastres... and I actually said something intellectual!

Wally, I agree with you on the black & white thing. I've gone so far as going back to shooting everything with large format B&W film.

Got me back to really enjoying photography and what it means to me. Taking my time and making images I want to make at a slower pace.

I also recently flipped through a box of B&W prints that I made more than 30 years ago. Something very 'real' about those old prints, back before technology took over the world of photography.
