'Software Ate the Camera, But Freed the Photograph'

Craig Mod wrote a follow-up piece to “Goodbye, Cameras”, entitled “Photography, Hello”:

I’d like to dive into more technical detail here than seemed prudent in “Goodbye, Cameras.” I’d like to poke deeper into the idea of the network and its implications on the photograph and photography, more precisely define photography’s role in my life, ponder digital archives, and layout some thoughts on dealing with technological sea change. You know, just a few light topics.

Because while our relationship with so-called traditional cameras is fading, there’s never been a more interesting and, indeed, complicated, time to be involved with the photograph.

I’m still unsure as to what I love more: the photos or the prose. Just splendid.
