When the digital locker is dead, what happens to the photos?
Digital pictures are the only thing keeping us alive and thriving, according to the founder of a popular online gallery.
“We are here for the future of photography,” said digital picture frames co-founder and former Disney employee John Wirth.
But that is unlikely to happen anytime soon. “
When the digital pictures are gone, the pictures will disappear.”
But that is unlikely to happen anytime soon.
“Digital photos are a relic of a time when pictures were not stored digitally, which is now very much a thing,” said Wirth, who also heads digital photo company Digital Camera Inc. “And I think people are going crazy for them.
It’s the only real thing keeping me alive.”
The company’s first digital photo exhibition, the “Paint Your Mind” exhibit, opened last week in downtown Vancouver.
It was created by a group of Vancouver residents and featured over 100 of the company’s digital pictures and photos from the past 10 years.
The exhibit features more than 2,500 images that are now digitized and made available online.
It includes the digital camera photos that Wirth created for the exhibition, as well as some that were taken on site by photographers who are now retired.
Wirth said the exhibit will be used as a springboard for other companies to do the same, and he is working with some of them on creating similar exhibits for other types of photography.
“The digital photos are very much the future,” said he.
“I don’t think we are seeing the end of them.
I think the next 50 years are going have digital photos as their most important asset.”
And Wirth doesn’t expect to see any of his company’s pictures disappear anytime soon either.
“There are going of course to be more than 1,000 digital pictures in our archive that are going somewhere, but I’m not sure when,” he said.
“It will be a lot of time before it will be gone, and that’s what’s important.”
The exhibit is the latest project in a long line of events that have been in the works at Digital Camera since 2013.
Wertich started Digital Camera in 2008 as a business development tool, and then launched a digital gallery in 2009.
The gallery is still running as of March 31, 2018.
But Wirth was not surprised when the company decided to shut down its business last year.
“This was a decision we had made very early in the project.
We wanted to move forward with our vision of digital photography and the idea of the future.”
