|Does photography have the recognition that it should have in contemporary art museums?
Probably not... it's always been sort of a "bastard child" in the Art World. Having said that, I'm not really qualified to comment further
I think so there are more and more photo exhibition in many museums.
Does photography have any recognition in a way that recognizes the value of simply walking around with a camera to observe your surroundings in a different way? Just the exercise of looking at your surroundings as if to find a great composition is a very rewarding thing to do. It is ultimately liberating.
In life, our experience being different than the next persons, is arguably just a matter of perspective. At the very least, photography has the power to influence perspective. At best perhaps, the ability to shape ideas. Yet, the photographer is often uniquely capable of uncovering but one of the millions of possible perspectives, in order to successfully communicate to at least one other person. It can be powerful
Yes, but perhaps photographers don't. Contemporary art museums seem more interested in "artists who use photography." That formula doesn't make sense to me. Photographers are artists, anyway.
I think it's growing and has it's place in contemporary art. It is just such a huge field that it's hard to encompass everything that is great out there. DSLRs and film cameras are extremely accessible right now, making the truly great photography of the age less noticeable.
No it does not, there is still a level of elitism within the Art Galleries and Art Museums.
I doubt it.
No, unfortunately it doesn't. I spent a few days calling Museums and Galleries around the area I live in, most don't accept Photography as art.
Oh yes. And it's recognition is growing rapidly these days.
I don't know. I see a lot of shite art in contemporary art museums. The photographs are generally better than most everything else, but they can be shite too. There is a problem with saturation in the contemporary fine art market and frankly I wish there was more selectivity by curators. How this adds up for me is with the realization that I don't much care for contemporary art museums because when I am inside them I am mostly looking at art which I rather don't care for and wondering why I am supposed to care for it. I don't know what's going on with contemporary art museums anymore.
Slowly its getting there.
It is getting there but it still has a way to go. Los Angles and the California area are setting the stage for it to be considered a fine art.
Depends on the art museums.
