What is photography artwork?

Photography wall art is a type of artwork created in line with the artist’s vision using a camera. This can be with the use of a traditional, digital, or phone camera.

Its purpose is to tell a story, capture a moment, document, or be art. The vision will differ from one person to the next and is a highly personal form of artistic expression.

Why is photography considered a form of art?

Photography is considered a form of art because anything with an artistic intent behind it is considered fine art. It can be found in the form of abstract, portrait, or landscape photography.

Both museums and galleries display photography wall art. It can be found in the homes of those who have an appreciation for fine art.
