View Full Version : should we start a new movement - modeled on the slow food movement

I'm envisioning a public relations campaign, waged by photographers around the world, to educate people about the value of a printed, framed, displayed image. I am disheartened by people holding up their cell phones and thinking they have made an image. The slow food movement has educated people away from junk food to appreciating home grown, local food that rewards local farmers. I think we could do the same for photography and photographers.

I'd like to see local chapters (possibly affiliated with PPA affiliates), a national organization, etc.

Any interest or ideas? Suggestion for a name? I like slow pho but I'm not sure there isn't a better idea
