My modern paraphrase of Ansel’s quote is “the digital file is the score, and the print is the performance.”
I have been very active on social media the past year, especially on Instagram and on my Facebook business page. My posts have been seen by many viewers and have generated positive responses. However, to truly appreciate artwork one should really view it in person. Electronic media just does not do the art justice.
There are so many unique ways to print and display art these days, in addition to a multitude of photographic papers such as glossy, luster, matte, metallic and more. Artwork can also be printed on canvas, metal, and acrylic with various finishes as in the paper versions. I won’t even get into the zillion ways that artwork can be framed.
Electronic media is so transient. In contrast, artwork displayed on walls in your home or office will continue to enhance your life on a daily basis.
