    There is a side of photography that is art. Cameras never take pictures the way we see with human eyes so this enables the photographer to portray and image differently which in essence is art.

    Photography is art!

    Even in Yahoo Answers, the photography section comes under "Visual Arts" for a reason.

    In my eyes Yes. I find more pleasure looking at good photographs than so called 'works of art' or a masterpiece.

    Just look at the National Geographic website for the evidence

    Yes, of course it is art.  Society has accepted photography as art since the days of Stieglitz.
