I believe that there is a certain amount of feeling that is in present on film that is simply not possible in a digital format. I am a technologist through and through, my understanding of how the translation of light into a digital form is quite thorough; yet I was also trained from a young age in a traditional darkroom, so I am also quite familiar with the analog process. The difference between a fully analog process cannot be rivaled because sensors can’t create a natural curve, or natural gradient; technology can only mimic these things – mathematically producing its best estimate of what a curve may look like. An analog process captures them as they are, purely authentic. This is why I specialize in using analog mediums, it is the most authentic visual representation of the world around us. It is also why I use a medium format camera, to produce the most realistic image without bareling or lack of detail when enlarged.
