What is Fine Art?
Take 1000 random photographers of all skill levels and styles of photography and ask each one to take an artistic photo of a specific subject or multiple subjects using the same camera (when there are no other photographers in the experiment around), post-process the photo to their liking using their current post-processing software, and allow a multiple blind study with 3 or more judges (i.e., the photographers, judges, investigators, and data analysts remain blind to one another) separately determining which of the photos are to be considered “fine art” or “non-fine art”. The subjects determine their own definitions of the two categories.
What would the outcome be in terms of agreement between the judges?
What do you think the outcome would be?
This was proposed in my “Odyssey of Vision” Interview if you would like to read more about fine art.
