So now we not only have "kevin" who is raving insane, but you who's understanding of art is at a level less than the most primitive of savages. In other words an "educated ignoramus willful ignorance" of a subject he's been trained to ignore.
Just because your understanding of art is totally lacking that does not imply that nobody else has any understanding either. It only implies that you have no idea what you are talking about.
Think about this one, "Don": The thing that makes photography art has nothing to do with how "accurately" it presents a representation as your eye would see it.
And Don, please don't feed the insane trolls.
