From Darkroom to Daylight explores how the dramatic change from film to digital has affected photographers and their work. Harvey Wang interviewed and photographed more than 40 important photographers and prominent figures in the field, including Jerome Liebling, George Tice, Elliott Erwitt, David Goldblatt, Sally Mann, Gregory Crewdson, Susan Meiselas and Eugene Richards, as well as innovators Steven Sasson (who built the first digital camera while at Kodak) and Thomas Knoll (who created Photoshop along with his brother). This collection of personal narratives and portraits is both a document of this critical moment and a unique history of photography. Much of Wang's work has been about disappearance—of trades, neighborhoods, and ways of life—and to live through this transition in his own craft has enabled him to illuminate the state of the art as both an insider and a documentary photographer.
