Kodak may be dead (just reorganizing, really), but "conventional"
photography -- that to which we are alt -- is still very much alive.
Whatever kitschy name of the week anyone adopts, it will always be
"alt" to me. (I know you didn't say you were trying for a kitschy
name and I have no doubt that you were earnest in your inquiry, but
the very act of trying to find an alternative for a perfectly good,
well-understood, neutral term is ... well ... kitschy or faddish, in my book.)
