    im guessing its art because of the fact that the photographers know all their stuff and possibly outside these photoshoots take other kinds of photos...plus, any fool couldn't take good pictures

    What is art and what isn't? Their is no answer to this question. It is completely subjective. If you think it is, it is. If you don't think it is, it isn't... The word art by itself has no meaning. What is important is the social representation that goes with it. That representation is different to everyone and depends on people's personal experiences and culture. So, "what is art?" is a question that no one should ask on an internet forum, just because we all come from very different cultural backgrounds.

    i can rip a sleeve off my shirt, roll it in mudd, burn a bit of it... then frame it...

    some would call me a genius... some would call me an idiot....

    as deudeu said... there is not answer to what is and isn't art...


    i would say some people are more artistic than others... as in creative, or can look at something and read further into it than most...

    Anything that can be viewed as art, is art. The subject matter does not make or not make it art. That's why a urinal can be art. And personally, I don't think anything is more artistic than a nicely shot nude.

    Members: to tell you the truth, I much doubt this member is coming back to follow the discussion. So trying to give answers to "Courtney"'s quest seems moot. All her (?) posts want to do is advertise the website of that Paul Buceta. Thanks, Battou, for being alert enough to remember she has done the same before.

    Giving anyone the benefit of doubt, I'm not taking away this post (only edited the first post), but maybe you best no longer reply at all.
