Product Description

"Amateurism, the theme of this issue, is a phenomenon that has been tied to photography not from the medium's very beginning, but rather from the period when taking photographs became accessible to a broader range of social classes. At the start, photography was an exclusive, very demanding process (both operationally and cost-wise) that was however gradually simplified. Over time a business element entered into the process: sellers not just of cameras, but also of photo materials, chemicals, etc. had an interest in the maximum expansion of the market and thus in the gradual simplification of process. The result of this effort was the gradual permeation of photography into a wide array of layers of society." - Pavel Baňka, Editorial
