At best there are two vital areas in which the ‘straight’ photograph is still relevant: journalistic/technologic/scientific and pornographic. The first carries with it a certain amount of fascination of exoticism and the inapproachability of its subject material. The latter contains its own fascination, only it is one of strictly mentalized approachability. The problem with both types of photography, however, is the constant need for replenishment and renewal.
