“Some celebrate and some lament, but nearly all acknowledge that
something has indeed changed for photography, that something is over.
For some it is that photography in the art world has run out of steam;
for others it is that contemporary photography fails to address
“pictures that simultaneously exemplify and expand what were once called
“the peculiar possibilities and limitations of photography.” Changes are attributed to some
extent to new technologies but more largely to what photography can be
as contemporary art.“

Na sequência desta questão, pode-se ler com interesse este artigo na webzine Foto8.
