Doubt (1)

While reading and thinking about photography questions come up. Questions I don’t have answers to yet. For now theorizing on photography equals doubt to me. The thoughts are random and incoherent.

  • Dictatorial artist vs democratic artist = idea vs commerce. An artist doesn’t make art (purely) for himself, if he does ………?
  • Realism in photography is impossible. Every photo has a certain amount of abstractism and dishonesty in it. Why so many advocates?
  • Why does realism exclude picturesqism? Why does contemporary art disgust aesthetics?
  • Being an artist should be more than being a craftsman. A privilege. After learning the craft comes idea and conceptualization. Why do so many contemporary artists get away with art that doesn’t show craftmanship?
