The first time

I had a catalog comprised of digital images.  I had not made a print.  I had not smelled it as it came off the printer.  I had not witnessed the depth and richness of the inks as they seeped into the paper.  I had not touched it.  Nothing haptic.  Nothing tactile.  That first print and the experience resounds deeply still and affected how I consider photography.  Photography had been an abstraction - this was something concrete.
