105 – Beyond the Screen: The Significance of Printing Photos in the Digital Age

In an age dominated by digital screens and fleeting moments, the art of printing photos has taken a backseat. We are capturing more photos than ever before, however we are printing less and less. Yet, there’s a timeless magic in holding a tangible photograph – a sentiment that transcends the pixels on our screens. While so many memories are often lost in the digital abyss, the importance of printing photos becomes a testament to preserving the essence of our lives.

Which is why I brought our guest, Andrew Funderburg, on the show to talk about the importance of the printed image in a predominately digital age. We discuss both the emotional weight of printed photographs and the impact that tangible photos can have.
