(Photo credit: Ariel Kessler, Travis with his Eyes Closed)

Photographer Ariel Kessler would be completely fine if digital imaging went the way of the dinosaurs. A firm proponent of the darkroom over desk top crusade, her photograph Travis with his Eyes Closed was produced using 20 x 24 Polaroid film.

She writes:

I wish I were alive in the early to mid 20th century where my favorite photographers and style of photography was being practiced. I believe in the artists hands involvement in the process of art rather than staring at a computer screen. Getting your hands dirty is key in the making of art.
