My grandma still looks at me in amazement whenever I tell her that the photographs I take are digital - and that they live on my computer. When I was growing up, my grandma was always taking photos - of the family, her garden, the dresses she made for me. She’d take her roll of film down to Walgreens and a few hours later we’d get 36 little prints. My grandma doesn’t understand how photographs can simply sit on a computer. But here’s the thing: they don’t have to. And in fact, they shouldn’t! Photo prints and albums are fodder for conversation. Not only that, but each time I sit down with someone to look at old prints, we make new memories through the act of looking. This is why I’m a believer in the magic of analog - of actually getting the dang photos printed!
