You'd think, after a decade-and-a-half of widespread moaning, bragging, posturing, marketing and pontificating, that every conceivable angle of the film vs digital debate would have been covered ad nauseam by ten thousand bloggers and a hundred thousand forum participants.

My readers are well-aware of how stubbornly I hold onto certain photographic convictions — particularly my belief that photos are best-enjoyed printed. In a time when many photographers have never seen even a single one of their photos in print (much less a collection of prints), it's a delight to come across a world in which photographers still practice the fine craft of distributing photographs the "old fashioned" way — via small, independent magazines. This article discusses one such magazine, Littlefields, and how it gives me hope that photography's future need not resemble its present.
