Business / Philosophy of Photography Taking pics is one thing, but understanding why we take them, what they mean, what they are best used for, how they effect our reality -- all of these and more are important issues of the Philosophy of Photography. One of the best authors on the subject is Susan Sontag in her book "On Photography."

Ant!foto Manifesto

We have sometimes discussions about photography and what photography really is, or should be, or...

I just stumbled into this manifesto which can be worthwhile a quick look...
but do not take it too seriously

i like the sentence: "photography is too good to be regarded as art only"
and consider family pics to be a most valuable kind of photography

Dear Robert,

Looks good to me but may be a bit too subtle for some people.

Cheers,
