the network image

Just estimating from the number of YouTube subscribers, the generative/network image makers and curators are no threat to the Film Experience broadcasters. Two different approaches to film, PersonA & PersonB have more than 13,000 subscribers with more than 100 likes on their most recent posts. On the other hand, one of the above Digital posts has only 2 likes and less than 200 views as of this post.

And meanwhile, the industrial base of chemical photography is noticeably fragile. It is said by a German participant in the industry, says that their chemistry sales support the R&D into their emulsion+ business. Without profitable developer sales, there is no development within the business.

photographer Lester Hayes–Almost 100 years old, Lester Hayes was a pioneer of Abstract Photography. He took photographs of ordinary things, using a sheet of mylar plastic shimmering in the breeze, to produce stunning images, and he did it all with the brand new Kodak Instamatic. Kodak awarded his ingenuity with a major one man exhibition in New York City, but became disinchanted when Hayes discovered a tiny flaw in the camera that ultimately contributed to its demise.”
