In the days of analogue film, many photographers would pop their best shots into a few albums and store the rest in envelopes alongside the prints’ negatives. Due to the constraints of film roll capacity it wasn’t hard to find particular shots from a relatively manageable collection of prints. In these digital days however there are no limits to the amount of images we can capture on our camera or smartphone, so we run the risk of our best shots becoming lost in a sea of ones and zeros. 

As we fill up multiple external hard drives over the years we may have photos stored on a wide range of machines, increasing the risk that we may never find certain shots ever again. Other shots floating in the cloud may also become lost due to the sheer volume of files to sift through.
