"Photography has become a social phenomenon. Technical advancements allows everyone to own a camera and is accompanied by the 'magical' darkroom everywhere.
If the photographic technique is easily accessible to anyone without negligible costs, we can not say the same about the pace at which the photographic language is mastered by most of us."
