The subject of photograph or composite or art has come up several times here in the past two weeks. The discussions have been great – some controversy , some conflict, but much learned.
The truth is that the photo world is changing – but should there be reasonable limits ?
As I was paging through the latest WPPI contest winners it struck me peculiar that nearly ALL the so called photos – were not actually photos at all – but rather heavily photoshopped and composited images. There are a few actual photos in the group – and for whatever reason, those are the ones I like the best… maybe I’m a luddite, who knew..LOL I guess real is no longer, real.
While these “photos” are certainly great works of art, I don’t think they really should categorize them as photos at all – in fact, I’d love to see the originals – my guess is they look nothing like the processed versions – but that’s perhaps why I am posting – what are your thoughts ? I’ve said before I am no purist, but man, some of these are pretty fabricated…
