Fom an intrview with Peter Lindbergh in Frost
"What was it like switching to digital photography?"
"It was a real drama (laughs). Time and time again Iíve battled with technology and have had to ask my assistant how something works. The main difference, though, is that photography in the past was a more intimate process between the model and the photographer. Today the camera is hooked up to the computer, and there are a thousand guys on the set. If you are really unlucky, youíve even got an editor standing at the laptop commenting on every move the model makes, or suggesting how it could be done better. That, unfortunately, doesnít have much to do with the photography."
I feel fortunate to have sidestepped most of that in my life. Maybe I wasn't born too soon after all.
