The Photography Show by AIPAD

Photography has never really achieved the same kind of status as painting. The art form may have more impact on the viewer but its technical nature makes it easy to dismiss. We take it for granted precisely because we know that anyone with access to a camera can eventually learn to take an arresting image. There is no mystery behind the process, only the subject matters. You can find beauty anywhere, so long as you have access to the right environment. Still, it's worthwhile to compare the ways in which photographers differentiate. Looking at these images below you can see how they highlight contrasting elements, they may even linger in your mind, but probably for not long enough.
