The Decline of Film

Film's Not Dead by Alex No Logo

 

NPR published an article that shows just how far film has fallen from grace.

At the turn of the 21st century, American shutterbugs were buying close to a billion rolls of film per year. This year, they might buy a mere 20 million, plus 31 million single-use cameras – NPR

I don’t think film will ever be totally removed from the market, but it’s certainly becoming a niche area of photography.

An interesting read if you have the time.
