Man invented this apparatus which put the portrait painter out of business. Instead of a subject sitting for hours, they
pose once and in a matter of seconds their portrait is complete. Okay, maybe a little bit longer for those nostalgic polaroid people.
But for the majority of humanity, photography has reduced the act of creating an image to pushing a button on a machine.
Wait about 5 more minutes and your pictures appear on your computer screen. So, heres the question. Is photography really art?
Is an image that took, lets say 2 hours to create (1 hour photo is not always reliable) really an art form?
Can it be ranked with the canvases of Picasso or the music of Debussy or the works of Michelangelo?
