The schism in "fine art" photography
Forgive a few generalizations.
In my experience of serious (art) photographers' websites, there are roughly two kinds:
One is that produced by APUG type photographers- mostly b/w, heavily influenced by the big names of the first century&odd of photography, somewhat chatty, usually offering direct sales, and usually featuring the words "Fine Art Photography" (or -er) somewhere prominently.
The second kind, belonging more often to art school trained or else "urban," for lack of a better word, photographers, who almost always shoot color, seem to take little interest in any photography before 1960, say nothing about themselves except their showing/publishing resume, never offer direct sales, and never, ever, use the words "fine" or "art."
Clearly, culturally these are worlds apart. Clearly, there are successful and famous artists working in both camps. Why the disconnect?
