Video will NEVER replace the still image. The reductive power of the breathtaking image will remain — it’s instantaneous, unobtrusive yet IN YOUR FACE. Video… you have to press a button. And you have to engage your ears. An image can convey that story in a microsecond. It’s an illustration, whereas the video is the article. I’ve been a broadcast film and tv producer, and it’s just not the same. Plus, you never, EVER get the intimacy of a photograph with video.
