In all kinds of art there are certain rules. So in photography there are many rules regarding the technical details in the image. The rules of composition, sharpness, exposure time, lighting, colors, etc. What if I create an image that is totally technically incorrect but still wakes up some emotions in observers and they still like it? Is that photo a waste or still can be considered art? Look at those two pictures below and think are those total waste or do you like them. I like them and I’m certain that I can find at least 50 more people who will too. So is it art?
What about Picasso? Many of his paintings from the period of Cubism I personally do not like and find them nonsense. Like this one for example:
My opinion is that any rules should not exist in the art. Art is something that we create from the heart, art is emotion, and therefore should not be limited by the rules. To me it’s meaningless.
What do you think? I would love to hear what visitors of my site have to say about this topic!
