    Interesting that "photography" was NOT even considered an 'art form' until late 1970's if memory serves me. After all how much (creativity) does it take to 'push a button'? vbg

    If you don't know, William, you never will.

    This looks great, just one BIG omission, where is the advent of instant photography? POLAROID should be included in any history of photograph. Wonder why it is missing. Instagram does keep the Polaroid look and feel alive in the digital age. I worked at Polaroid for 15 years and loved every moment!

    The Question is, for professional photographer who earn money from photography, do they can survive?

    This seems like an advert for Instagram to me....

    Oh look at the end of the thing... They (probably) paid for it too.

    Great information. I personally don't think "art" when i think about photography, Photography for me is a great medium for photojournalism and documentary .

    Expression is one of the most important aspects of human existence. Photography is a means of achieving that.

    Agree, Anonymous. Further, photography is an immediate introduction to significance. The top layer floats on the surface, but the waters are deep, and so is the import.

    Stieglitz to Adams and beyond proved that photography could be art... but it takes practice and skill and an inner vision. Happy snaps on the cell phone are a separate pool. Photography , at least analog photography, has reverted to the pre-Kodak era where it was the province of wild-eyed enthusiasts

    My camera kept me from going into adeep abiss after my husband passed. photography kept me engaged with the world around me. Its more than a picture.

    Given the amazing new photographs I come across daily, I can't believe that photography is dead. Here is one of my favorite sites: Coeur d'Alene Photography

    I guess it depends on what you consider a photograph. Major motion pictures are rarely shot on film but that doesn't mean it's not a movie. http://www.digitalimagehut.com/
