WE ARE THE PICTORIAL-LIST.
Pictorialists were the first ever photographers who presented the case to the art world for photography to be classified as art and, in doing so, they instigated a discussion about the artistic value of photography. They wanted to elevate photography to the same level of painting.
Whether photography is an art, and where the lines between realistic photographs and manipulation are drawn, is a debate that continues today as more people become fascinated by photography and are uploading their photographs to social media platforms.
Pictorialism: an approach to photography that emphasizes beauty of subject matter, tonality, and composition
We are an online platform that brings together emerging and established photographers from all over the globe to explore and be inspired by. Photographers who want to find the extraordinary in an ordinary place.
WE ARE LOVERS OF ART, BEAUTY AND CREATIVITY.
Street or landscape, still-life or human life, experimental or realistic, colour or black and white...everything can be PICTORIAL.
We want to bring unique content to our audience that examines our PICTORIAL outlook. We are conscious to the reality that, by viewing other artists' work, can lead to new approaches and experimentation in our own photography. We have curated an open-minded and supportive creative community for you to join in, connect with, share inspiration and knowledge with many readers and collaborators who want to devote their passion to photography.
