Let’s talk statistics. Now don’t shut this down just because I said “statistics”, I promise to keep it short and sweet. Information provided by Professional Photographers of America.
42% of people between ages of 30-44 will likely look back and wonder where photos of their childhood, get-togethers, relatives and friends have gone decades from now, and, reportedly 67% store their photos solely on a computer alone. A whopping 70% don’t have photo albums and 42% no longer print photos at all. That is terrifying!!
We are being dubbed as the “lost generation” because as a whole we are printing and preserving our histories less and less. In my opinion this is not good!
An entire generation, the millennials, could grow up without printed photographic records of their lives. How scary is that!
