Hi Greg,
No matter what they call it? It's still JUST garbage and shouldn't even be
considered in a "FINE ART" category! Nor any other!
But then what do I know about so called "FINE ART PHOTOGRAPHY?" 

Maybe now that I've put in over 60 years shooting real photography in a
"great many categories and locations about the world?" Maybe I could finish
out my last 14 years before "Hitting the Silk? Taking motor bikes in the
rain at night with a flash??" ;-)

"I could become known as "OLD WETHEAD?"  ;-) Yeah I know I don't need to
wait!" ;-)

When reading about fine-art photography, it seems there's an inverse
relationship between the amount of bloviation used to describe images and
the quality of the images. 

For example:

<< Her snapshot-like images speak of the truth of an undisguised moment. >>

Maybe her photos are sharper than the party pics we shot of friends and
family with our first Kodak Brownies or Instamatics, but phrases such as
that give us an undisguised look at the truth of many moments in the
fine-art photo world.
