Yes, and people like Oliver Stone (and Michael Moor) have benefited greatly
from this capitalist system that they like to vilify at every turn. It's too

I see no reason why any photographer today would even have to know what a
darkroom was.. He can take the photos and either email them to his publisher
right on the spot, or sit in his car and "process" them with Photoshop on
his laptop while he eats lunch.
