dc.description.abstract Since 1839 photography has been a vital means of communication and expressiOn, being at once a science and an art, both aspects are inseparably linked. It can only be through the skilled hands of a photographer that photography can rise as an independent art form. "Conceptual photography is the photography of ideas - the representation of ideas through photography and the creation of new ideas about photography. It is the realm of the imagination, the territory of fantasy, the province of persuasion. it is images that intrigue the mind, as well as catch the eye. " (O'Connor 1989:87). The most important factor when producing a photograph of an object (studio still life, natural found) is to decide what you wish to say and to whom.

Additionally they should have strong backs. " en_US
