    A simple definition of art is that "art is the imitation of life", right? Then I think that explains quite a bit.

    On the other hand, the preservation of art is a different game, which is more like running a marathon for the artist after his/her death. The question is, who is going to?

    Some of my favorite photographs that totally inspire me (i.e., from Adams to Weston, to Cunningham to Bernhard, etc..) did not look that way when the shutter was released, but they were expressed that way in the final print.

    Photography seems like art to me

    Photography is an art as much as painting is. The discussion was settled over a 100 years ago by the combined efforts of Stieglitz and his Photo Secession comrades. Anyone still claiming photography isn't art, has missed out the past century.

    Photography isn't art, but art can be made from photography.

    Is Photography Art?"

    Jesus, this old chestnut again?

    Yeah, the lights were turned out on this argument over a Century ago.

    Photography CAN be art, just like painting, or dance or sculpture or ...

    Did your friend go to Bob Jones University?

    Yes it's art..

    because when you see a photograph, you see formiliar things in a way that you have never seen before.
    The process of photographing is science, but what happens before you click is art. What you shoot, how, from where, what light you use, what film you chose and why..

    People often confuse art and craft. They think art is a skill that you have, like painting. But painting may or may not be art. It's art if you are expressing a vision, if you are just copying what you see, then its not art, but craft. You can have craft without art, and you can have art without craft. But the best craft and art come when they are together.
    Art begins in the mind, a really specific and strong vision, can already be art, with craft it becomes what we all can see or hear or touch

    There is no art. There are artists only.
