Photography Redefined

I resisted with no avail. I fear it wont be complete and I fear it will lose some of its magic. Yet, my biggest fear is misinterpretations of my views. Therefore, I must state this before I proceed: these are my humble views. Agreing or disagreeing with me will probably not change my views and I really do not expect to change your views either.

Here is my two-tier definition:.

First, "source photograph" is an image made by projecting light onto a sensitized surface.

Second, photograph is a new image created by analog or digital manipulations on one or more source photograph(s).

A photograph is not an ART, if it does not have an artistic vision.

I applaud the artist who can distill his/her vision into an image by any means, with or without traditional methods. It is more than the path taken, tools used, but the resulting image, that I really appreciate. Unlike many who say it is the process that they like, personally, beyond the process, I really do enjoy the result. The process itself has no source of happiness, if there is no results.

I do not limit the artistic vision to a release of the shutter, just because this has been the norm. Art of photography is more, much more than what a dumb sensor can capture, else, we would have seen almost everything there to see.

Enjoy life,

Mehmet Ozgur
