Word for word

Michelle Anderson Photograph. "Roots"

Browsing through The Photographic Dictionary is my most recent favorite pass-time. It's an expanding bunch of images by contemporary photographers that define dictionary words with visual language. Somehow there's a real cohesiveness with all the pictures, which i love, and what i love even more is that most of it is film rather than digital. If it was up to me (which, i suppose, it actually is) I won't be buying into digital for a long time, if ever! I think it's about the tangibility of film, the series of chemical reactions it takes to create a photo, that makes it superior to digital and so appealing to me.

Kelley! Your notification about your blog almost got lost in bloggerland. I just saw it this morning, I can't wait to follow it :)

Haha that photo is so clever. And I know what you mean, I use my film cameras far more than digital, and enjoy developing them myself for the most parts. But I suppose digital will always have the convenience factor.
