Craig Mod, writing for The New Yorker:
This past October, just before the leaves changed, I went on a
six-day hike through the mountains of Wakayama, in central Japan,
tracing the path of an ancient imperial pilgrimage called the
Kumano Kodo. I took along a powerful camera, believing, as I
always have, that it would be an indispensable creative tool. But
I returned with the unshakeable feeling that I’m done with
cameras, and that most of us are, if we weren’t already.
The non-networked, non-app-enabled camera’s days are numbered.
