Prof. Fawn and Class,
Based on our text it was surprising to me how the camera came about, let alone the first pictures
to be of dead soldiers from war.
Did the invention of the camera change the arts? Why or why not?
Yes it did, it brought "Realism's Pencil to Light", with the invention of having light and chemicals
take a picture of something now the arts could preserve real life in a picture in an instant instead of
months of painting life.
Providing what everyone sees instead of a painting based on the artist
view of what they see.
Is there a relationship between movements such as realism and impressionism and the
All three of these movements provide art of what is there (what is real, what is impressed
and what is captured by camera).
Instead of imagination, fantasy, and abstract of what would be there.
