What is meant by fine art photography?
Practical Photography Magazine contacted me recently to ask me if I could help with a query they had from a reader regarding the definition of fine art photography. One of my minimalist b&w photos from Crosby Beach was also used to illustrate the feature. My interpretation published in the magazine was that: "The best fine art images connect with us on an emotional level and are produced by photographers who have a unique vision. They can show us a different way of viewing the world in which we live. In my own work I'm most interested in exploring ideas about beauty and simplicity - it makes me feel happy and at peace with the world."
I'd be really interested in hearing your own definition for the genre of fine art photography
