The photographer on the other could have tried to explain why the photograph was the way it was, what his thoughts were, what went into making the exposure and how the actual print was made... And then added that only time will tell if a photograph, or a painting, or a sculpture is a true work of art.

By "lumping" photography with painting and other established art forms (in the lady's mind set) he might have been able to make her understand and perhaps have her purchase a print...
then again may be not???

Photography is an important art form
...as long as there are artists who use photography to express themselves...
