There are times that I really hate my youth. Not because of things I did but for things I didn’t do. There was a period in my life where I did not preserve my negatives and I have paid dearly for it. Some of my favorite images only live in a few prints and some others don’t even live in prints. They live in a scan of a print or a picture of a print. I was reckless with my negatives and did not appreciate them the way I should have. The question is…does an image die once the original negative has been lost? Or does it still survive in the memory of a print.?
