Is street photography art?

Answer: Yes (or at least it can be).

If you want a more wordy answer here it is…..

Art* is the manifestation of the intent to create art.

If I build a shed to store my tools it is a shed. If I build the same shed in a gallery as a commentary on the need for a refuge to escape the boredom of suburban life, it is art. Anything can be art if it is produced with the intention that it is art.

Whether or not you like it, or it is good art… or what good art is… or if it is possible for there to even be “good” and “bad” art…. whole different shed full of tools.

* Art = the product of human creativity produced for the purpose of communicating a message.
