Wherever this belongs ...
The question of "Is Photography Art?" has another answer, from a participant here - Thomas Sauerwein's web site has a statement-definition that I agree with - a ton!!
I'll repeat it here ...
"Through a chosen medium, a visual artist's responsiblity is to go beyond a skillful use of the craft and give the viewer something mental to carry with them, a place to revisit always."
I visited his web site recently - and to me it is one of the best - uh .. a wonderful place to BE - with lots of great work everywhere.
Something from his site to remember:
"The day I stopped chasing great photographs and started chasing the light, I understood that photography is art."
Where is my chisel? ... I've got to carve that in stone somewhere.
