Eric Kim made excellent remark recently regarding Flickr.
“Will your Flickr account be there after you die?”
It might, for a while. But not for long. And seeing how it’s going recently for the site in question, I wouldn’t be so sure that the entire site will be there for that long.
I agree with Eric, any serious photographer should at least publish one real, physical photo book. It’s a different kind of process, and it must be so satisfying to see your images to take physical form.
Real photo books have special appeal to me. I love them. I even want to sleep with them. They even have special smell to them.
I recommend you to try. There are great places to do that with a limited cost.
