Man Ray – Photographer or artist? Are there differences?

31 Jan

I found a small exhibition of Man Ray on ASX and began wondering if some of the pictures were photographs or art or both.

When talking about manipulation nowadays every naturephotographer screams…NO ALTERING!!!!

The extensive use of Photoshop probably won the 2012 picture of the year award,  unfortunately don’t remember which one but I remember well the discussions in several internetforum about it and of course the pictures.

Is that art? Should that be accepted in a tournament? Naturephotography was the theme…but does Photoshop really leave a picture or art?

Is just the thing that the eye can see acceptable?

You decide for yourself, I have not come to a decision about that.
