Is photography an art?

November 15, 2013 9:23 am

I came across this video via the Saatchi gallery website. A debate as to whether photography can be considered an art. When I think of Ansel Adams or Man Ray or Robert Frank I think of them as artists in their chosen fields. However, for many years they were not considered as artists. Phtography is multifaceted, but is there a line between Art and Photography?

My questions are:

Is photography an art? Do you consider yourself an artist?
