The tagline of this website has always been “photography is art” and hopefully the picture above proves that. It has just been accepted for the 2019 Chester Grosvenor Open Art Exhibition. Almost all the other exhibits are paintings in one medium or another; my picture is a cyanotype on fabric.
That means that while it is a photograph, it’s really a one-off and can’t be copied – the photo of the image (above) doesn’t have the same feel as the original. But it is a photograph that has succeeded against paintings, so it does sort of prove that photography is art?
The exhibition is free and is open till the 18th of September so there’s plenty of time to pop in and see my picture and all the other artworks in the exhibition.
Photography is art.
