PhotoWings Here are some excerpts from this fascinating interview: Malcolm Daniel on our shared photographic heritage. From a historical standpoint, there are things to be learned from the past. From a more spiritual aspect, great works of art have the power to move us, whether they're made now or whether they were made 50 years ago, 100 years ago or 1,000 years ago or more.

Malcolm Daniel tells the story of his predecessor Maria Morris Hambourg's forthright job interview with Philippe de Montebello, then museum curator and director at The Met.
Deep Sleep Magazine - This Issue View Photo Stories > Underground. The insomniac metropolis, through tunnels, bunkers and silent spaces.

We talked about his encounters in the traditional portrait studios, which gave him the love for the hand-colored image, and how for him those photographs, like real life instances of Oscar Wilde’s pictures of Dorian Gray, contained the presence and the youth of a family member now in advanced age or even deceased. And how the vintage image has this mysterious time-warp quality that we cannot shake off or stop being fascinated by — an addiction merciless tapped into and catered to by several online platforms, numerous photo books, collections, some galleries, eBay sellers and auctioneers.
