    We would like to expand our group to include members, 35 and under, to strengthen the diversity and creative thinking of the group. Including younger photographers who are committed to analog black and white photography will broaden the Collective’s perspective as we begin our new project “Visions of America” next year. If you are a young photographer that embraces light sensitive film, paper and chemistry to create your work, please consider contacting us for a portfolio review. Our membership of thirteen is spread throughout the United states from Washington to Maine and we welcome potential new members from across America. Please see our website: www.monalogcollective.com for more information.

    I hope you get many young people! You welcome new members only from America? Lots of young photographers up here in Canada!

    Good for you, young man!!! Let him know that we don't tolerate ageism on this site.

    Are all Monalog overlords over 35?

    35 is a good age, I was hanging out with 30+ from age 17 until 10 years ago, as they kicked me out!

    Damn, Vincent Van Gogh would have been too old to boost the diversity or creative thinking of your group when he died --probably even before his prime. Well, no real harm in your post, great artists like Vincent are usually outsiders anyway.

    Still, you have one thing right: your little group could use more strength in creative thinking.

    Seems that folks like to needlessly expend metabolic resources to inform others of their disinterest in things. I always figured that if I wasn't interested in something, no problem, I'll just move on to something I would like to spend time with. Live and let live, right?

    That being said, I'd like to learn more about the group. From what I've read, I admire the mission and direction of the collective, many of the same photographic practices I follow.

    "Diversity" is over rated. As for 35, I've almost been that twice. I think passion is more important than age and certainly more important than "diversity." As a b&w, dry plate, and wet plate photographer I do have passion.
