Photography as Fine Art

As defined in, fine art is a visual art considered to have been created primarily for aesthetic purposes and judged for its beauty meaningfulness.  Photography as a fine art form has subjects, concepts and ideas–showing the full potential of the artistic side of the medium.

Meg Pukel–one of my photographer friends from Miami, Florida–studied photography as a fine art at Syracuse University, and has always made artwork with her pictures.  It is easy for me to see the beauty in her photos,  noticing the effort, detailing and thought put into her work.  Pukel uses projected images within her photography, adding an interesting element to the subject.  Projecting images onto buildings, walls and columns, Pukel’s samples of fine art photography are exhibits of turning ordinary scenery into works of art.
