A quick note:
Like so many people, I fell in love with a Polaroid camera, when I was a child. I love some characteristics of medium and large film cameras and still use them, although most of my practice is digital. The gear that works best for me is, first, whatever allows me to be more present and aware of my subjects and surroundings. Second, and dependent on that point, it is whatever is best suited to communicating a story. Those are broad statements and will apply differently to different people, depending on their technical expertise, taste, and budget.
The digital age has been difficult and has had many sour impacts on photography, but it has also be liberating and exciting. More people are making images more than ever before, even while markets, the audience, and photographers rethink what is possible. Film is even making a come-back, partly thanks to nostalgia, and partly because it has characteristics that we still associate with makes a photograph. Whatever the medium, I believe in simplicity. Less is usually more, especially on the streets. Shoe leather and a curious eye are the photographer's proverbial best tools. Photographic tools that complement those things and help us communicate our imaginations, insights, and awe — and, in the case of working photographers, that get the job done — are plentiful and truly remarkable, these days.
Empathy and awe, and the need to communicate something urgent or beautiful, are at the heart of a good picture or a good story. Photography is just one way to manifest those things. Journalists and artists are uniquely situated and driven to document and respond to trauma and beauty. Sharing those responses in a way that will resonate and hopefully impact others in a positive way is essential to being a good journalist or artist. Social justice and building solidarity are responsibilities we all share.
