“Technology can allow us to do things with greater efficiency and productivity, labour costs are reduced, but what I wanted to show is that there is a human element lost in that. We are in the middle of this huge transition, and the newspaper industry itself is very much at the front of this process that will happen in every other industry. The beneficiaries of this are a privileged and extremely wealthy few, but a broad spectrum of highly skilled workers are going to be displaced and out of luck for a very long time.”

Quote of the day: Jaime King


“There is something very intimate about shooting on film, it’s just between you and the photographer. Now, everything is like ‘Oh, we’ll fix it in post!’ I fucking hate those words. I just want to be like, ‘Why don’t you fix it now and get it right?!’ ”
