The seminar "Photography syndrome" has reflected on what can be the specificities of analog work today. Intimacy and openness to chance were two consistencies. The participants concluded that openness to chance and improvisation, which are kept to a minimum in digital work, are the advantages of analog work. By encouraging what is usually considered mishaps, the students embraced color casts, leaks, and dust particles as new tools of the subject. Vulnerability, intimacy, play, the image as an index of bodily gesture and connection have risen to the top as themes of the seminar.
