"I’d heard that the NT were going to restructure their curator posts but this is really shocking. How is a world renowned photographic resource of the calibre of Lacock going to develop let alone exist under a property manager whose skills,…"

David,

Thanks! I am writing mostly to folks today who are interested in the alt-process world, and are thinking of making their own prints. As for the academic world, mostly teachers of advanced photography. I want to show the variety of work that has been done historically, without the f64 idea of what a good print is. I think this may be an American affliction. I have worked with graduates in photography, who believe a print needs a good black and a good white and send a message. 

My department head, the Photography Department, at a community college, asked me once what was Camera Work was when I mentioned it. Of course, this would not happen here at the British Photo History Forum, but to have a photographic department head asking that question is quite normal here.

I am planning another book on contemporary work, broader than just platinum.

Thanks again, for the comments. It is perhaps a bit too informal and autobiographical, but the complaints about my memoirs were they were too technical.

--Dick Sullivan
