Photographs as Art - Post Yours

Let's start a thread of posts...NOT discussions, arguments or your opinions on the old question of photography and art... Post either your own photos that you consider as art or post other fine examples so we can all learn.

I have shown these before. They are from a local photographer whom I can only describe as an artist and he sells many of these photos to businesses and individuals as ART, and I happen to like these very much. So, here is my first example of photography as art:

I have to give a nod to our own Chris Crawford. There are only two photo prints hanging on my walls (I favor geometric abstract paintings for wall art), and both are his.

Dave, this is one of my better photos in my opinion (although exposure could have been better). It received no comments when I posted some months ago. It's closing time at the museum, so I guess it fits the topic.

And I'll include this because it's a photo that a fellow RFFer from the other side of the globe requested a print of ... which I happily supplied. I was very surprised at the time but thinking back I remember Pitxu actually wanted a copy of this also. This image definitely encapsulates how I see and express my art.

That question is already presumed to be answered before posting on this thread. OTH, I don't know if that person's name is Art or not...

Yes! I also have two photographs by Chris and am impressed with his powerful graphic sensibility and sense of irony while working within the documentary tradition.

Pickett, did it ever occur to you that photographs are, in their essence, "geometric abstract paintings"?

Thanks ray, that one made me laugh out loud. Great idea.

I also wanted to comment on the high quality of the examples you guys posted. Dave, the "split" view of the brothers is very effective. Paul, I already picked the photo you showed for comment in the gallery. Keith and RichC, beautiful examples. Keith I can see why someone asked for a print of that one.

OK, enough love from Philly, I gotta get back to work.

This is one of my personal favorites from the past couple months and i guess represents the "type" of photography that I personally enjoy and "feel" the most.

Keith,

that's a great picture.
I think that You and Pixtu have shown the most interesting set of self portraits I have ever seen. real creations...
Can you organize a series of your self portraits?

I made this image with the intention of making a 16x20 print and hanging it on my wall. I did just that - and I am enjoying is very much. I think that qualifies as art by my definition. I may be the only one that likes it, but that's ok because it was made just for me to enjoy.

Love kids' photos; they can be so fresh. This is my favorite from my son when he was 3 1/2 w/ a Vivitar plasticam.

Paulfish suggested that I post this image to the thread. Given today's date, I'm pleased to comply.
"The Way I Prefer to Remember Them" is the title for today. Normally, I entitle this "Invasion," but that just wouldn't be correct now.

So many superb photos.

I need to add one more sort of abstract one.

Thanks Paul and thanks also Richard for your kind comment.

I have to confess that is me ... it was done when I was experimenting with telling stories through triptychs and also being determined to create them on the negative sequentially with a Konica half frame, and not in post.
