Thanks to the others who have responded to this thread with enthusiasm! And bravo, Michel!
Absolutely. There is no question in my mind about that, and to me there is no reason such a photograph can not be both accurate recording of place and time and transcendent art object simultaneously. It can go beyond even that. Certainly most of the photographs that I love and return to function on many levels for me, probably in ways that I'm not completely aware of.
