Robert Calafiore was interviewed by Debra Klomp Ching for at Length:
[AL]: Considering that photography is a visual art form that allows for infinite copies to be made, why is it important to you to make a unique art object?
[RC]: I think I have always thought about my photographs as objects themselves. And for me it was important to make each one as individual as the moments, dreams, and experiences that inspired them. No digital tools or technology are ever used. Given the choice of endless change and progress in technology available, I instead choose to use the simplest method for capturing an image, connecting more closely with my interest in understanding how technologies like augmented reality and artificial intelligence are changing our physical relationship to the world.
