On March 11, 2020, Ilford Photo posted the results of their “Global Analogue Film Photography Community Survey”. 5,439 photographers from 87 countries responded.
Ilford Photo concluded, in part, that “While new generations of film shooters may not yet have embraced the darkroom as they have film shooting or home processing, we firmly believe that printing is an integral part of photography and is as fun and rewarding an experience as all that comes before it. The data shows the tangible aspect of darkroom printing, not least getting people away from a screen to create something meaningful with their hands, is appealing but it is clear obstacles do exist. Time, expense, space, knowledge, and equipment all play their part.”
