Hockney on photography
Yesterday I wrote about the Death of Photography debate sparked by David Hockney.
It really is an interesting debate that concerns all artists who work with photographs, including myself. As a printmaker, I have used dark-room or "wet" process to prepare the negatives or positives for the photo-etchings I created. Later the computer replaced this process and allowed a greater ability to manipulate the image even further. Artists in every medium have always "manipulated" their imagery to portray their own visions.
