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.)

Best regards,
