During the past few years, photojournalists have been gaining recognition as artists. However, since photojournalism is a way of recording important events, they must bear in mind the practical aspect of their craft. Because of this, photojournalism is not an art.

Which of the following statements, if true, would best support the conclusion above?

A Artists do not consider the monetary value of their work important.
B An object is not an object of art if the photographer pays attention to its practical use.
C Photojournalists should bear in mind the practical utility of their photos more than they currently do.
D Some photojournalists are more concerned than others with the practical utility of the photos they take.
E Some photos are taken for art exhibits, and are not used by the media.

Throw in your views folks.. :twisted:

B for me. If what the photojournalists capture is not an object of art, then they cannot be considered as artists...
