aperture ~ a photography magazine cofounded by Dorothea in 1952 ~ published this essay in the second issue. The quarterly magazine "Devoted to serious thinking in photography" is still in publication. In the essay, Dorothea and her son Daniel Dixon wrestle with the role of technology in art. Specifically ~ what does a photographer do when the tools no longer constrain the shots? When the technical learning curve is essentially flat? How much of the art is photographer, and how much camera? In short...the same questions facing photographers in today's digital + filter-app landscape.
