“Mobile” Photography Doesn’t Matter

Neither does DSLR or any other form of modern photography. Photography technology will progress in ways we can’t foresee.

But it will progress.

Today’s top-of-the-line camera is tomorrow’s relic. Today’s most popular camera (the iPhone) is also tomorrow’s relic. All images from today will be seen in the light of advances we can’t imagine and it will happen in 20 years instead of 50.

The future of photography technology can’t matter to you now. What matters is the story. What matters is the subject. That’s all that will survive this era.
