|Does photography have the recognition that it should have in contemporary art museums?
Only to an elite few. Lesser known and worthy photographers are every bit as worthy as those artists of other media.
No, absolutely not.
I think so. Good art photography is always pushing boundaries of subject and technique. I think contemporary art museums recognize it as an essential part of their collections.
yes.its getting better...I saw a photography exhibition on "the Worker" at the Getty that was awesome. All B+W old photos.
No, because there is still a stigma of "its just a photograph"...yes...sometimes it is, but sometimes it much much more.
Probably not as much as it should, but it isn't badly shown. I would like to see more.
No. I'm not sure people have been groomed to see photography as an art form. It was very controversial in the beginning (19th century/early 20th) whether photography was art or purely scientific. There was quite a fight over it.
Now, with mass media and the inundation of images we face daily. A brain has to sort out so much visual information that an artistic photograph just becomes another thing to be sorted. It's unfortunate, but true.
It's why I began taking blurry/bokeh photographs on purpose. I was tired of sharp images that I could easily dismiss. I wanted to see beyond what was obvious. To me they are meaningful, but I'm sure some people just think they are junk.
Photography is an incredibly valuable art form.
I think so.
It's getting better I think. There is some way to go, but we'll get there, I have no doubt.
I think photography in general does not have the same admiration or respect that it once did. I would think we could probably pin that on digital image manipulation artists trying to pass off their work as photographs.
That's a deep question. I would have to research this to give an apprpriate answer.
