It may not be Art but it’s collectible. This has been an ongoing argument since I started photographing in the ’60s. Every year I recall, the argument becomes more and more prominent then things started to turn. Today, contemporary photographs at Sotheby’s is the most active department in the auction house.

While I do not consider myself an artist, I have for a brief time considered pursuing the fine art of the discipline. In fact my early work was in heavy pursuit of the arts.
