Feb28-2014. Las Vegas.
Last week I got an email from a lab which I always take my films to get processing saying that this is a last call for an E-6 processing. Even though I have been aware of this matter of fact for sometime, still I was kind of shock, and felt sad that it is going away. 20 years down the road, I will be in my late 50’s, we will see that slide film become something collectable!
I have grown up on a generation which saying that if one wants to get good, shoot slide!!! This term is now gone. That leads me to think of what a contemporary theme would be for this digital age… Share with me if you know… please.
Photography is like everything else. People almost always get excited about something new, but one thing that people seem to not mention about when it comes to a deep connection to oneself…
Everything gains more value through time. How much, and how long can we do something in one human life span is, for me, something that I every interest in. I can not go back in time to do what people I admire did, but I can do something that within my 40 years time I have left. With tools I have grown up with. With idea and believe that inspire me to do what I do today. Perhaps, someday something that I do will inspire someone like people who came before me did to me.
That where the meaning really is.
