Photography

Photographic art is considered to be made up of somewhere between 9 and 32 different genres starting with Straight Photography and continuing on with Abstract Photography, Dada/Surrealist Photography, Modern Photography, Photorealism, Pictorialism, Street Photography and the lesser known Pictures Generation and Group f/64 styles. (The Art Story:Photography Movements)

 

 

Photographic technology itself did not achieve commercial stability until the mid-1800’s when Louis Daguerre introduced the “daguerreotype”process for fixing a captured image onto a metal plate.  Since that time photography has emulated, to one degree or another, all of the artistic styles that are seen in other mediums and produced a few genres such as Infared and Macro Photography that are unique to the medium.
