“A photographer is an acrobat treading the high wire of chance, trying to capture shooting stars.” – Guy Le Querrec
Photography was once looked down upon by the stuffy art critics in the early 19th century. Contrast that to today, photography has a stronghold in the art world. Photography’s ability to capture a moment instantly creates more fluidity and flexibility for what an artist can portray. The ability to modify lighting, form, props, and format helped to create photography into a compelling medium of art.
