35mm photographers rarely win the fine art label from critics because their negatives are too small and heads too big.
William Eggleston is a Fine Art photographer who used 35mm film. Today it seems a lot of Fine Art is done with digital camera's & lot's of post processing so I feel that there is open space for Fine Art photography in the 35mm film format, especially B&W. To me Fine Art consist primarily of these 3 things. Subject matter, does it inspire the viewer, & will it sell.
