Her choices range from crisp black-and-white street shots to contemporary color experiments. There are even a few antique processes, including a collodion ambrotype and an albumen print. Everything is meticulously printed and simply framed, factors that help to smooth out a jumble of sizes ranging from notebook to 3 feet square.

Layne Kennedy: Photograph Different

The wide availability of smartphones has brought increasingly higher quality cameras to the masses and allowed people to take pictures more spontaneously and edit them on the fly. What does this mean for professional photographers? Does the rise of the eight-megapixel iPhone and Instagram marginalize their craft?
