The act of cropping and framing the photo seems to define it as “art,” yet it’s the same image as the one seen in a larger context. I don’t spend much time thinking about art as a category of human experience because the whole visual world is an amazing thing. If art is anything, it’s a way of seeing and arranging bits of the world that says something new, something never seen before. Literature and drama do the same with words and ideas.
