Cycles of the new and the old

Hi Camera Club and blog readers,

My name is Harlan Erskine, and I’m happy to be the new guest blogger. Over the next few months I will be writing about the art of photography as it relates to our contemporary culture and the history of the Camera Club. I’m looking forward to digging into the club’s archives and learning about how its one hundred and twenty seven year history evolved with the changes in the medium.

This week I was saddened with the news that Apple founder and CEO, Steve Jobs, passed away.

Jobs’ work has had a huge impact on photography. Today, the most popular camera used to upload a picture to Flickr is the iPhone.

Apple has popularized photography in much the same way Kodak did with their Brownie camera over 100 years ago and for this we salute you Steve.
