From image distortion to digital toning, multiple-images to montaging, Photo Art bridges the gap between fine art and photography, an increasingly popular creative interface with image-makers of all disciplines. In confronting the relationship between photography and fine art Photo Art clearly demonstrates ways in which each creative area influences the other. The book combines traditional and digital working methods, showing how techniques can be mastered either way. Packed with stimulating ideas and inspiring images, Photo Art shows in clear and concise ways how to turn simple photographs into unique visual concepts, unachievable by conventional photographic methods.
