I thought I’d start an on-going list, as comprehensive as I can, of the different types of photography in the world; how we attempt to define photography’s boundaries within certain words. Fine Art is just a small part of this enormous visual phenomenon that permeates our lives at some level. I see it as a sort of galaxy; a cosmos of pictures that is infinite and beautiful. Each word conjuring up a different image for each person. I’ll add links as I go along. I hope it may be useful.
