    Crap like this is why I just call them pictures or prints.

    Just don't ask Maris for his answer to this question

    As for my answer - it never stops being a photograph, but it may become something else as well.

    Google around for Steichen's paintings and compare it to his platinum gum prints. there are stories of his work being warmly accepted in galleries then rejected when they sere revealed to be photographs.

    That is an elegant way of putting it particularly because it effectively acknowledges where the photograph ends and the other stuff begins.
    Photography, the word itself, invented and defined by its author Sir John.F.W.Herschel, 14 March 1839 at the Royal Society, Somerset House, London. Quote "...Photography or the application of the Chemical rays of light to the purpose of pictorial representation,..". unquote.

    jnanian,

    Your work is always refreshing. I'd call it photography, of the highest order.

    I almost would categorize photograms differently though they are made on photosensitive material. Though I would still call pinhole photography even though a lens is not involved.

    The first thing I would say is not photography is the painting style "Photorealism" where a photograph might be taken first, then meticulously re-created by hand in acrylic or oil paint.
