The graph above shows what is seen as right and wrong in Photography, however studying cameraless photography makes me question whether it is relevant to all artists engaging in photography. I think it was once relevant to artists many years ago but as time has passed and our minds and ideas have moved forwards with the time, these boundaries for what was once seen as the correct way to take a Photograph have been crossed, manipulated and it does purely rely on subjectivity of the Artists intent and mind with their own ideas, after all I believe Photography begins with a pre vision in the mind and is there to be created by the Artist.

Non representative Photography

An example of non representative Photography is the work of Frederik Sommer, who greatly informed the Photographic art scene during the 20th century. in 1957 Sommer made Photographs using smoke or paint on to cellophane and glass. He placed the paint/smoke between the cellophane and pulled them part to reveal shapes which resulted in the human body. He believed in the fact we need to take care of both mind and body. Somer is a great example of breaking boundaries within what is considered to be the correct way to Photograph. I admire his spirit and love for Art as well as Philosophy.

The essay linked above I found interesting and difficult to digest so much information at once, though it is thought provoking and although I haven’t fully studied it I intend to for future uses.
