    I can't stand it when people take crappy pictures, turn them black and white, and call them art.

    But this is the problem with the 'art world'. If you don't get it, it means nothing.

    I get it, it just doesn't spark my interest. It's not something I would pay for or recommend to others. Unless when you say "get it," you mean it touches me, in which case, no, I don't "get it." But that's nothing against Wells' artistic integrity, I enjoy many of his other photographs, and I'm not trying to say he's bad at it or anything.

    That's the million dollar question haha. Art to me is something that someone else was inspired to create, which also inspires me.

    I photograph places people've died. It's not about how people die, it's about how people grieve.

    i think to understand Well's motive of the pictures before you can really understand the depth of the art in itself...i think..the way i saw it was just rooms, cool pics of rooms but just rooms, then when Wells said what the sequence of photos were about it gives you a whole different outlook on it which i thought changed the way the pictures were in general..cool pics man

    Oh yeah I totally agree with you there. The story behind the pictures definitely makes them much deeper and more interesting. As standalone pictures, though, they don't do much for me. I'd rather look at a picture and have it impact me without somebody having to say "this is what this picture is meant to be about." But once again that's nothing against Wells, I like the guy, for as little as I know about him.

    wells: thanks! i appreciate the thought that's gone into your photos. going off of previous comments, "art" doesn't have to be "understood" and just because picasso's rose work doesn't appeal to me as much as his cubic, that doesn't mean i'm gonna say "it just looks like a dumb acrobat to me." even though this is a boarding forum, this thread is the best thing to be on here in ages imo (and i don't want to join a photo forum!). if some want to have an endless philosophical discussion about the definition of art (which is counterintuitive to its nature anyway) make a different thread. lets keep sharing wok and discussing it proactively. i'm not a "fan" of wells' public spaces shots but i respect him as a knowledgeable artist with a lot to offer and i look forward to seeing more from him and everyone else.

    I hate when people take everyday objects, turn them sideways, and call it art.

    Anyway, I'll freely cop to the pretense charge. You have to know what you're looking at for those pictures to mean anything.
