“But is it art?”
This first photograph was created in 1822, and almost from the very beginning photography and art were intertwined, and yet, also from the beginning, artists and art critics have debated whether photography itself could actually be art. The Photographic Society of London was started in 1853, and one of the early members stated that photography was “too literal to compete with works of art” as it was unable to “elevate the imagination”. The centuries have passed, and that attitude has largely changed, and now photography has taken its place in museums beside great oil paintings, bronze sculptures, and woven tapestries. Now we see digital art bursting onto the scene, and the debate is starting all over again.
Each of these works started as one or more photographs:
None of them would be mistaken for a simple photograph today. Each is now a digital work, changed and merged and modified and filtered. Most art critics would begrudgingly admit that each is a work of art. The most important critic, of course, is you, the consumer. For someone who creates art, and sells art, it is the opinion of the customer that matters most. So tell us all … do you consider these to be art? Would you hang these on your wall? Would you PAY to hang these on your wall?
