With KATHY RUGH and LUCIA ROLLOW (Bushwick Community Darkroom)

For some of us, growing up in an analog world and seeing it rapidly shift to a digital one has been an exhilarating, and sometimes overwhelming, journey. As digital cameras have taken dramatic leaps forward in just about every area imaginable, one is left to wonder what is the role of analog film these days. Is film obsolete? Are the days of film over?

Before attempting to answer this question, we should first look at the differences between Analog and Digital, in terms of quality and characteristics (some highly subjective!), as well as their process, feel and cost. Each medium has a “”look”” and the gap between the old and new technology in terms of that look is still quite significant. Join us for a presentation designed to change the way you think about Digital precision and the hazy world of Analog.
