An interesting aside from photographer Michael David Murphy’s Against Ease: or How the Inifinitely Reproduceable Pushes Us Further From the Source:

In some ways, the pricing of digital fine art prints seems to be a shift-away from paying for an actual print to paying for all the expense that went into creating the work that led to this actual print, because making the actual print is relatively cheap. And there’s something a lot less seductive in that, to me, as someone who might like to buy a print. I want to pay for the worth of the thing itself, not the artist’s overhead.
