The point being that while I consider photography to be an art form, critics, curators, collectors and peers determine if a particular persons work should be elevated to that lofty standard.

Now that does not mean that the director of the department of photography at MOMA needs to like your work. If it brings some joy and satisfaction to you and a few others, does it really matter how anyone else classifies it?
