I was watching the something on telly about the Japanese tsunami......the footage was of a huge pile of water soaked photographic images. There would have been thousands of random albums.....and individual images. Maybe a dozen people were carefully wiping the stuff down and trying to dry them off. A few dozen more were looking for their own lost images in that pile....
In this digital age where many many photos are taken and shared over the net....or never leave their storage device...what legacy are we leaving?
I mean personal legacy....the stuff for your grandchildren or great great grandchildren. Yes there will be the awesome photos of royal weddings and the 2030 fireworks taken by some bright young thing.....but in 2030 will someone look at an image and say " look heres a pic of great great grandpappie! look at the funny clothes he was wearing
Is photography a legacy for the future or something to be used and enjoyed right now ?
