David Burnett on Digital Imagine

And, of course, a bunch of other things over in an interview with John Camp at The Online Photographer. It’s in two parts, the first dealing with some of what he’s doing day to day and the second delving a bit into some ethical questions.

Here’s a graf I love:

In the end, when you analyze the characteristics of Tri-X, Kodachrome, and every digital camera made now, each had its way of interpreting a scene. I think the real challenge we face is to try to create something which stays close to the real scene, which is a representation of what happened, and which avoids making the photograph just about the photographer.

Read the whole thing (says the guy who admits to being a huge Burnett fan).
