Photography as Art Work the photographer believes might command artistic value beyond their own circle. As usual in OPF, these submissions merit critique based on intent, context and purpose. This might cover technique, composition and the like. To go out in the world, however, far more might be expected, even for things of beauty or great craft. Art criticism is harder. It requires knowledge of the arts, literature, history and esthetics. Criticism comes from study of the photograph and related works. It's an assessment of how this work might stand our culture. As Dante warned: "Abandon hope all ye who enter here!
