This is an interesting discussion about photography as art; what makes a photograph a work of art and the photographer an artist? Weigh in on this with your thoughts
on the subject. When do you consider the photographer an artist? When is the work itself worthy of being considered art?
For me, I think the process of consideration in the creation of the work is important. What is the intention? What does the photographer feel and make you feel when you look upon the work? Does the work evoke something in the viewer, tell a story, make you think more deeply?
And yes, for me, a certain amount of skill in the final creation will (most times) play a factor.

This 24 x 48 inch mixed media piece is painted on gallery profile wood panel. I haven't poured the resin yet, and I'm debating whether all work should have it. The resin provides a high gloss finish, extra protection to the surface of the painting and vibrancy. The colours 'pop'. But there is the issue of glare - sometimes. It's like glass reflecting the light. To pour or not to pour the resin?
We're in it together! It was a fun night at Nocturne on October 13th, but the show continues at A Hidden Gallery on Birmingham St., just steps from Spring Garden Road.
Exhibiting together are Monika Wright, Andrea Pottyondy, Sarah Jane Conklin and Anna Horsnell Wade.
Two events have been added to bring you in for your holiday shopping. On Friday nights, November 16th and December 7th from 5 - 10 pm, you can drop in for some hot apple cider and walk out with a work of art as a gift for yourself or a friend.
Art has the power to transform our lives, the way we see the world and how we interact with one another. I hope it brings you joy and inspiration.
