If today I shoot with a TLR, others would think I'm an artist since I use an old and strange camera. But TLR cameras were so popular in the old days and they are hardly considered artists' tools.

Actually by now almost all film photography should be considered ART since the mainstream has already moved on to digital....

what a-r-e y-o-u talking about?

Cant anything mainstream be art? and in any case what does this have to do with anything? Gombrich dident think photography was art, but luckily for us steichen did.

Perhaps you are confusing the word art with craft. Is there anything that is not art?
