I am sure the next step will be the electronic image, and I hope I shall live to see it. I trust that the creative eye will continue to function , whatever technological innovations may develop.
From: Ansel Adams, Examples: The Making of 40 Photographs, 1982.
I have recently started re-reading this book, and came across this particular segment just this morning. Adams died two years after this book was published, and while he did see the initial electronic camera efforts, he did not witness the digital camera explosion of the early 2000’s. Still, what he said remains just as valid today.
