Now I have absolutely no idea what the future of photography and / or cameras is. Not a clue. And to be honest I don't really care either. It will either evolve or it won't. What it won't do is change dramatically in the near future. Because that's not how change happens. Change happens very slowly, almost imperceptibly and it's only when you look back with hindsight many years later that you get some idea as to why and how it happened. Plus where's the fun in predicting the future? If you get it right, where's the buzz in that and if you get it wrong it's just another of life's little disappointments.
And it's not the 'graying of traditional photography' (whatever that is) that we should be concerned about, it's the 'graying of the soul' and the decline into mediocrity that we should be striving to avoid. And dullness, lack of ambition and the absence of art, craft and imagination is the preserve of no one particular age group, but the end product of technology and global communication. This, rather than fulfilling it's promise of innovation and creativity, mostly stifles our desire for experimentation and sends us back into the coma that passes for artistic expression these days. Because that's exactly where the politicians and commercial multi-nationals, who really run the world, want us to be.
