Is the title of a new show at the International Center of Photography

And a New York Times story here

After reading and coming from film base I think a "photograph" is a tangible, tactile image on paper base that you can touch and hold as an entity unto itself.

I think digital, which I use everyday, when left in its electronic form, is image acquisition.

But the answer remains unanswered as stated in the article
