    I didn’t know him well, Mike, as he died when I was 10, but I think you are right. He was a craftsman also, a man with an appreciation for the beauty in nature, and the interesting objects he could create with chizel, and later in life, with paintbrush.

    Thanks for this… I loved reading it.

    • Thanks Pops. I wonder if there’s wood type in heaven? 😉

    Love your quote “Not because we are afraid of progress, or technology, but because we see value in the process and results of the old ways”. That’s exactly how I feel when I shoot film. Great post!

    • Michael, Thanks for your comment. Yes, I’m not interested in holding on to the process of printing simply for nostalgia’s sake. What it comes down to is that it still offers something that offset or digital printing cannot, in the same way that film in cameras does for photography. As artists we can live with one foot in the past and with the other take a stride forward to apply these old process in new ways, integrating new ideas and technology into them, and in that way infuse the old with new vitality and energy.
