About  Artistic Photography

Fine art photography is photography created in accordance with the vision of the artist as photographer. Fine art photography stands in contrast to representational photography, such as photojournalism, which provides a documentary visual account of specific subjects and events, literally re-presenting objective reality rather than the subjective intent of the photographer; and commercial photography, the primary focus of which is to advertise products or services.

The Library of Congress Subject Headings use “art photography” as “photography of art,” and “artistic photography” (i.e., “Photography, artistic”) as “photography as a fine art, including aesthetic theory”
