Originally, photographs were not intended as ‘Art’, they were documents, records, momentos, press images, family pictures etc. Still today, a large number of photographs are used for these purposes, but an image that invokes emotion the same way that an artwork does can surely be regarded as art.
Stieglitz was so determined that photography be regarded as an art form, that he founded his own society in 1905 with that purpose.
This proves that photography was not just a revolution in it's own right, but it also revolutionised the art world, literary world and the way that people viewed themselves and their surroundings.
