Jorge, you have said much the same thing several times (here and PN) and I keep wondering why, unless you are thinking of Photography only as what you do. I keep wondering if the photographer that pulls the 100' of 5" film out of the U2 spy plane feels like an artist? How do those that do nothing but copy shooting or simple snapshots feel about their art? I think that numerically most "photographers" have never thought of what they are doing as art and relatively few may aspire to some sort of artistic expression.

It strikes me that most of us are talking past each other perhaps because of differing definitions and experiences.
