Poetry and music are both arts. Photographic art certainly relates to both, as does other arts such as painting sculpture. etc. I'm not sure if it is abstract, or just seeing/feeling deeper into everyday life. In any case, life without the arts would be a dull place.
For many artists, in their medium, their art must be kept pure. They can entertain no crossover to sully their vision. It seems odd to me, but perhaps they are thinking of the singularity of their focus. For me, the different arts evoke and echo in each other. This small selection from my website ties in music, poetry and photography. For me, they click. (no pun intended)
