The PMA (Photo Marketing Association) had their convention at Darling Harbour this week. Having attended I was suprised at how much Analog has been squeezed out of it. The Ilford stand a company loved for its awesome Black and White Film, Silver Gelatin Paper and Analog processing Chemistry only had Ilford Inkjet papers on display with no mention of anything Analog, The Fuji Stand a company which produces great products like Velvia, Reala and Neopan didn't have anything about film or analog products on display. And then there was Kodak whom I felt must have been mocking anlog by only having kodak 400 Max film and disposable cameras on display... A huge lack of analog! especially since kodak just launched kodak Ekta 100 a new colour film this year. All was not in vain though! Pete Longworth gave an awesome speech about his projects both past present and in the pipeline. To see Petes video from PMA please lick these two links http://www.petelongworth.com/Hello.html and
