When Photography Becomes a Weapon

When Photography Becomes a Weapon | Studio Art and Art History | Scoop.it

Photography has been used in many ways throughout its history: as documentation, propaganda, keepsake, etc. But never has it been so frequently used as a weapon as in the Information Age.

Do critics paint women artists out the picture?

So the art would not survive many generations and it would not be thought of as art so much as a useful tool.
