On Photography

"Photography, though not an art form in itself, has the peculiar capacity to turn all its subjects into works of art." --- Susan Sontag

What can it mean for photographic subjects to be turned into works of art? Do they remain so after leaving the photographer's gaze or the photograph's frame? Does artistic meaning alter the viewer's memory and so live on?

Garry Winogrand said, "I photograph to find out what something will look like photographed."

The following images are corners intersected by morning light. I wanted to see how they looked photographed.
