  1. What Is Photography? (No Need to Answer That.) Two exhibitions by Japanese artists raise deep questions about the medium, and — refreshingly — leave them hanging. https://www.nytimes.com/2023/11/21/arts/design/sugimoto-moriyama-london.html?unlocked_article_code=1.Bk0.x_6d.KSjSSxKzHl3A&smid=url-share

  3. I think I had a Zip Jaz drive that used that cable, too.

  5. These are great, but I think this is more effective with a small crop.
  6. A fixture of growing up in Indiana and attending Indiana University. https://www.theguardian.com/sport/2023/nov/01/bob-knight-basketball-coach-dead-indiana-hoosiers
  7. Best show on TV. Some seasons can occasionally be seen in the US on various services. It's been on Netflix, BritBox, Roku channel, Amazon, and a few others.
  8. Is the jam on top of the crem on one of those and under it on the other? Pick a side.
  9. Even better, it makes them sleep
  10. I took 4x5 classes in college and this pretty much lines up with my experience. Indeed, the more expensive the camera gear, the worse the results seemed to be. Take a look at the Mamiya Super 23. It's a 120/220 camera that is a rangefinder but that also incorporates bellows for tilts and swings. It has a ground glass back available for utilizing those (as well as a Polaroid back). It also has 6x6. 6x7, and 6x9 backs and really excellent glass. I had one on loan for a while and it's probably my favorite camera I have ever used.
  11. I know lists like this are subjective and always leave stuff out, but no K1000?
  12. @naamanf That's really lovely -----^

  15. Doubtful. Generative AI creates based upon what it has consumed. It has currently consumed everything. While the pattern recognition models will get better, some increasing percentage of what it consumes in the future will be AI generated, and that recursion will make the hallucinations worse, not better. To be better, the AI would need to be able to differentiate between AI generated and not AI generated, and it can't.
