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.
Artistic value vs curiousity
Art must have a goal. If an artist achieves that goal with his intended public it’s good art.
My interest lies in design not in Representation
Photographs are found beautiful because they fulfill a desire?
Terry Barrett says in his book Criticizing Photographs (McGraw-Hill Education; 5 edition, 2011) ‘all photographs demand interpretation….. they need to be recognized as pictures about something ……. why this tone of voice? Why make art bigger then it is? Sometimes people just wanna like something for what they see.
