I don't know if this should go here or in the lounge. It is more about the artistic merts so I put it here. I have wondered now for a few days what is really meant by cutting edge photography? Is it a style? Is it a new way of photographing? Is it finding something new and taking a picture of it that one one else has? Is it the way you treat your negatives? Is it designing your shot and taking it, as if you were a painter composing a scene? I want to know what seperates it from the rest of photographic endeavors. I also want to know who are the current cutting edge photographers. It has bee mentioned to me that the only ones who are cutting edge are the YOUNG who live in Central America or Eastern Europe. I didn't know there was an age limit or a geographic restriction to it. I also didn't know it had to be akin to the artist Cezzane. What are your thoughts, and if you have examples please post them as well. I think this might be a fun thread.
