    Cultural Geographic Divide

    Do you think there is a cultural divide in photographic/image appreciation dependent on geographical location? For instance, is the European view different from the USA, or the Far East? I suppose this is very dependent on the subject matter, but I ask the question in the hope of stimulating an interesting discussion.

    well

    When the classic Japanese film "Rashomon" won a big international film prize in Italy in 1950, Japanese critics said that the film must be not Japanese enough if foreigners "got it." The truth is that there are universal truths, myths, stories, experiences. I have family members that come from Asia, the US, Europe, Latin America and the Orient -- the Middle East. People are pretty much people.

    Seen some pretty much different approches to things here at Apug at both sides of the ocean, I say yes.

    One thing that comes to my mind is nudeness. Anyway, current technology may not only equalize on information but also on attitude.

    I live in France and Canada, and occasionally in the US. The only difference I ever see is in modern photos and art, is when there are fads that come and go at different times.
    But at a more basic, traditional level, it seems people like Cartier-Bresson, Ansel Adams, and many others are equally admired, (and valued) just about anywhere you go. At an exhibition of Adams in London a while ago, I stood behind four local Brits who were admiring the scenic beauty for sure, but also commenting on the excellent artistic eye, skill, patience and determination it must have taken to create those pictures.
    Good art is good art.
