Fine Art Photography should reveal something about the photographer. But also, Fine Art Photography may reveal something within the viewer. Fine Art Photography should engage the view to ask questions, challenge their way of thinking and seeing the world. Albeit, Fine Art Photography may also become an agitator, like the agitator in our washing machines to move something deep within us. This is why some artists appear repulsive to some, while others cuddly affirming our truisms. Each attempt at art has succeeded to remain us and serve as either a north polarity magnet or a south polarity magnet. We are either pulled toward, or pushed away from viewing Fine Art Photography.

“Seeing is not enough; you have to feel what you photograph” Photography is a modern art form compared to painting and sculpting. Photography uses framing rules from previous art forms. Fine Art Photography suggest an effort o do more than take a picture. Fine Art Photography purposefully follows structure from traditional art forms to reflect and show the vision of the artist with a single frame for intended meaning.
The artist and viewer may see the same image and apply a different meaning. The all share differences in the teams we root for and the foods we enjoy to eat. An artist chooses images for this genre based on his or her ideal vision of all the framing elements coming together to represent the still image and show the artist's vision for photography by reflecting light to show meaning, story and evoke emotions. The artist may choose what is Fine Art by his or her emotional response to feel a specific image separates itself from other images to become Fine Art. If your vision and aesthetics differ from my aesthetics, then please open another gallery within this website. I am sure you will find something to meet your definition of Fine Art Photography.
