Yes, but is it art?
Like Man, even when not in an attempt to mislead, a photograph is incapable of recounting the entire objective truth. This is an inescapable fact — perhaps the only truth capable of a photograph. At its most honest, a photograph is only able to tell one of many truths. The resultant image is the photographer’s seemingly futile attempt to capture a multi-dimensional moment in time, from a single unforgiving point in space. If the photographer accepts this charge for what it is, he or she can create an image capable of guiding the viewer’s thoughts to a particular interpretation of the truth. This is what differentiates the true artist from the simple talented operator, and attempts to answer the question “yes, but is it art?”
