Uh...Sergio...are you agreeing with that? And if you are, does this mean you'll no longer imitate comic-book art? And what about that beautiful horse in its stall at the race track, the photo that looks like an impressionistic painting? :-)

Ah Ah, clever provocation !

Uh, definitly no , Barbara, of course :-)!

The interpretation I gave of the originalquote was Photography doesn't have to follow someone else steps being just a pureimitation of something else. It has its own particular expression possibilities it has to exploit in order to grow and reach its own identity.

Definitly a declaration of independence and an encouragement to follow its own inclinations. ( Photography wasn't considered an art at all in the beginning , if I remember well !).

I just revamped the sentence appying it to Digital Photography.

In this case the meaning I wanted it to have was this :

"Digital Photography doesn't have to be a pure imitation of Photography (in this case ) : it has its ownparticular expression possibilities it has to exploit in order to grow and reach its own identity."

So, if I like to quote Roy Lichtenstein's work creating a comics out of a shot

or use digital filters and brushes toget what you call an impressionistic lookout of an horse shot in order tosomehow express the sad feeling I had of this animal closed in a cage looking at the sun outside

http://www.stevesforums.com/forums/v...mp;forum_id=62

is not to be interpreted as a purely imitating other arts but as exploiting possibilities Digital Photography offers to everybody that would have been otherwise very hard to get (and very expensive too) with traditional photography.
