Thanks, Greg.  That was really interesting.  I think he's right about digital photography all looking the same.  He's talking magazines, where everything has been photoshopped to death-- but I do see that in shows, too.  I'm not sure what it is, except that everyone is using the same Photoshop apps, and I still think that images made from film (even if then digitally printed) have something that digital scans just don't.  

He obviously knows technology, and he didn't say he didn't use it-- he just said he felt that the photographic results (at least in print media) were all of the same.  Nothing much distinguished them.  At least, that's how I heard it.  I think you almost can't do any photography today without some technological aspect attached to it (eg, making digital negatives, for instance-- scanning film and cleaning up the dust marks).
