Photography as art
Photography is probably the most long-suffering of the arts.
For a long time it was not considered as such, it is used as a product. It is believed that the photo is only good when it is sold well. But, if we treat photography as an art, such a statement is nonsense.
I don’t consider myself too commercially successful a photographer, but I don’t complain about fate. It is only at the dawn of photography almost any picture challenge interest among the public, today you cannot expect that millions of people will understand and perceive a good photo.
It is impossible to look at your work through the eyes of an outside observer, but it seems to me that this is not necessary. Because the only true path to the heart of the viewer is through own heart, and no other options but stay being yourself not exist.
