Annie Leibowitz on the future of photography

Leibowitz notes that, as things move faster, we long for the stills. In beautiful and awful moments, we remember the remarkable images. There will always be room for great photographers who can capture those images. We might add that, as technology progresses, great photography becomes less about having a technological edge than having an “eye.” Equipment like Lytro can focus after the fact and cameras are capturing streams of images everywhere. The great photographers may eventually be those with a talent for picking the most remarkable images from the stream like a miner panning for gold.
