The Power of Photography

JR's TED Prize wish: Use art to turn the world inside out

Personally I don't care if you call it art.

Brian, I suspect everybody is happy to know that.

Yep, the Sun is shining more brightly than it was this morning; I went to the airport with sweatshirt and multi-pocketed waiscoat (I usually wear it to pretend I'm a PJ or perhaps just because it saves me worrying about putting a wallet in one hip pocket of my Levis and the car keys in the other, both of which render sitting less than comfortable; or even safe, for that matter), but returned home in brilliant sunshine with perspěration where it isn't particularly helpful.

Now I'm sure you're all delighted to learn that, are you not?

Right, Rob. I was almost as eager to know that as I was to know whether or not Brian cares about calling photography art.

Sorry guys if I struck a nerve. I was trying to embed the JR video but I don't think you can at least I couldn't figure it out. I noticed that even Chase Jarvis thinks this is a great video!

I enjoyed the link - thanks for posting.

Why don't you care if they call it art? (Not that you should care, but you make the point that you don't...)

No, no struck nerves, Brian. It's just that LuLa offers a wonderful canvas on which to scribble one's own moments of frustration, boredom or even downright desperation.

In fact, that's one of the great things about this site: you can wake up as blue as a jay and yet, within minutes of getting the blasted computer to waken too, your mood can be lifted and the day turned sunny.

I love this place.

Brian,

I call Photography an art for sure. Even wikepedia says the same: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Photography

Warm Regards,
