Is photography art, an age old question.

Been very busy this last few months so the camera has not seen a lot for use. So any breaks  in working, I have my nose stuck in a book even if it’s only a lunch break. I love reading anything from the daily paper to whatever catches my eye. I bought a photographic magazine which there was a letter asking is photography art. I believe it is, I decide on a number of settings which affects the look of the in camera shot before pressing the shutter. There there is the post shot processing, which is unlimited in the looks you can achieve or the message you hope to convey. I got a book yesterday called ‘ Why it does not have to be in focus’ Modern Photography Explained by Jackie Higgins. Published by Thames & Hudson ISBN 978-0-500-29095-8 . My base for buying this book came about from reading that letter. Jackie Higgins explains the artistry behind 100 key works of modern photography. Into chapter 2 and it makes an interesting read into the art of modern photography and the expression expressed within the image.

My photographs here don’t claim to be works of modern photography, but are they what I saw in front of my camera.

    Agree with you George. Google is full of ‘perfect’ and ‘professional’ photography. I have always enjoyed making my photography ‘my own’.
    Nice work by the way and the art work ain’t half bad either 😉

  2. Great shots George. Love the creativity of the 2nd one. I agree that photography is art. For me it’s an expression of myself, my interpretation what what I see and how I’d like to portray it. It is after all writing/painting with light. Excellent post. One love 🙂
