Polluting the pure




Polluting the pure
This represents pollution at several levels for me ( may or may not convey though )

Also wanted to kick off questions about

- This is a composite image. Not made in Camera. But a clear artistic intent .... Should we allow ?
- In the general art world, this does qualify as a photographic fine art ? What is CNP take on this?

I just got this as an idea. thought I will post to provoke a discussion on boundary conditions

If it is too out of line can gladly take it down or post in illustration forum

Any feedback/comments are WC

Thanks, Raj for the interesting post. During the meet there were suggestions about exploring the other possibilities, non-nature etc. This post of yours is a fine example how to expand the artistic intent. I personally think we can create another gallery to explore artistic freedom like this one without worrying much about purity of the medium. Other two galleries (Fine Art & Creative ) can retain that tag ("purity of the medium") while a new one can be created to explore composites (outside camera) like this one.

Your take?

I would agree Ganesh. We are definitely into the realm of "Fine Art" now. We could separate this out and explore. We might take time to warm up though but we should try. Others can add to the thought process. I believe there is enough explore in an expanded "Fine art nature photography" without going into other genre's
On polluting my concept was also two other
- In pure seeing and experiencing mode especially in nature words are a pollution
- Also that all that messaging and opinions and paper around us also pollutes Nature both physically and conceptually
Complicated !!!

Amazingly worked n presented!, Raj. Yes, I guess one more gallery for such work may help us explore the possibilities!
