B: Q & A & A & Q & Q & A with Mark Shapiro

When I first became aware of digital I maintained that prints or books are the sine qua non, not the computer screen. Everyone’s monitor is different in quality and brightness and contrast, so your pictures are subject to the vagaries of bad monitors, bad settings, and in general the distraction of the computer interface. But I wanted my work to be seen on the Internet. So I came to the idea that at least my own calibrated monitor can be a kind of “platonic” standard and that there is a tacit disclaimer that the pictures might not look the way they are meant to look on other displays or as they would look definitively in prints.
