There is a great value and importance in printed photographs for our lives and for the generations after us. The history of where we came from, our legacy will continue on for generations all thanks to the power of print.
This is why we print.
Printing photographs is something I am extremely passionate about and with good reason.
We are taking photos more than ever, but almost all are digital files. Very few tangible prints are being produced today.
Digital files are not safe with technology always changing and failing. Yet we entrust our most precious memories to clouds, CD's, & USB drives. Apple computers don't even include USB or disk drives anymore. If you've ever lost the photos on your phone, you know the heartbreak.
An entire generation is growing up without a printed photographic record of their lives to pass on as our grandparents once did. Thus our stories will soon disappear. Our own history will disappear.
