Has photography killed painting? It’s a question that has been asked since the invention of the camera, and one that continues to be debated today.
On one side of the argument, proponents of photography argue that the camera is simply a tool that can be used to create art. They point to the fact that many famous painters, such as Pablo Picasso and Andy Warhol, were also photographers.
On the other side of the argument, detractors of photography argue that the camera has made painting obsolete. They point to the fact that photography is now the preferred medium for capturing moments and memories.
So, what’s the answer? Unfortunately, there is no clear-cut answer. It’seems that the debate over whether or not photography has killed painting is one that will continue for years to come.
