My premise for this essay is that a fine art photograph, created by an artist with the goal of expressing himself or herself, is a representation of this artists view of reality - a representation of this artists vision - and not a representation of the world as others may see it. This can be a blessing or a crime, depending on your opinion regarding this matter.
Eventually, this is a matter of opinion. Personally, my opinion is that a photograph cannot capture reality as we experience it physically and I can back it up with facts (I do so in my other essays on this subject including and ). However, I found that debating this point with people who do not agree with me isnt necessarily the smartest decision. So, I propose a different approach, one that works well for me.

What is Fine Art Photography?
“Fine art photography” is basically speculative work created without any restrictions or client influence. The imagery is far more revealing of the photographer’s personality than other types of photography. It is photography with fewer aesthetic restrictions which allows unlimited freedom to pursue unique visual expressions and ideas. It’s personal work that’s intended for galleries, museums or collectors.
