EMERGING PHOTOGRAPHERS

Family Photos or Fine Art

David J. Carol


DAVID J. CAROL


A friend said to me, "It's a fine line between art and family photos." Interesting...The word "art" in this context is very important to me. There is no art. There is only the photograph. Who cares what art is or what it means? Is it a good photo?

Paris Visone is one of the best photographers I know at shooting people she knows. Paris and I both shoot our friends and relatives. We have discussed how that works. We have to remove our familiarity with the subjects and just see the photo.

Is it art? I don't know and I don't care. Is it a great picture? That's all that matters.
