The negative is the equivalent of the composer's score, and the print the performance.
A picture is worth a thousand words; A fine art print so much more.
Today, because photography exercises such a profound influence upon the study of art, we tend to disregard the way in which prints continue to function as information.
I wish to state emphatically that I do not believe in any sort of handwork or manipulation on a photographic negative or print.
