I understand the concept but i don't really agree with it... i know you're talking about photo's here, but art generally speaking, when you go into an art gallery, isn't there a description of the piece placed for the viewer, enough so the the artist can get their point across, though little enough for the viewer to perceive their own ideas of the work. point being, all artists hold their own personal meanings to their art, so they have the right to explain to others why they created something, i mean even here on deviant art there's a description box right below the art...

also, would you care to explain the Eiffel tower charm? :T

P.S. i must admit i clicked this because it reminded me of the Joker...

It is a nicely done photograph. but I disagree with these words. This is perfectly fine because you can't expect everyone to love what you say/post, otherwise life would be pretty boring, eh?

But, people have different meaning for the art they see then the artist might want them to see. Explaining is just helping them get the message of what the artist personally thinks and what they want to say with their art.

Nope. If an artist has to say, "What I wanted to say with this is ________," they haven't done a good enough job. Yes, art is subjective, and people will see what they want to see. But if your goal is to MAKE them see something, either a) Try harder with your art, b) Accept that people will see what they want to even if you prescribe their interpretation, or c) Give up art and become the dictator of a small country.

I don't feel art is made to MAKE people see something. It's expressing yourself. And if others want to know what you were thinking or expressing, like me, then they should post a description. (My personal opinion.)

So, you are saying that an artist's talent is judged simply on the basis of the message? Yes, that is a big part, but technique and presentation is key. When the artist writes their artist statement, they are not trying to force their message onto others, but it is like they are telling of their emotional connection to the art. Because a true artist feels a strong emotional connection to their art.

Have you ever had one of your pieces criticized? even though the right thing to do is graciously accept the criticism as means of moving forward, does it feel as if someone just walked into your house and punched your daughter/son/mother/father/etc.?That, my friend, is the emotional connection I'm talking about. If an artist feels that way about their art, they are a true artist.

People are saying this photo is hypocritical because it explains itself, but that's exactly why it isn't hypocritical-- it explains itself. ie, it needs no outside source to explain it. The picture can stand alone with its full message intact.

Whether or not you agree with the concept, the message still doesn't contradict itself.

I disagree

Though, this is an interesting simile, and on the forefront, seems rather spot on, but if you divulge deeper into the subject matter, I cannot agree.

This implies that all photos have concepts, of which, is not true. None of my photos have a concept behind them, as I treat art nothing more than a craft that is obtained through repetition and practice. Then again, you are talking to someone who doesn't believe art exists because it is something created by man to satisfy man's needs to define what is "pretty", for a lack of a better word. Mother nature doesn't care for art, art is not a universal law. Science is truth, not art. You cannot define art, it is subjective, and if you cannot define it, it does not exist.

On the flip side, just because one does not understand a concept, doesn't mean the photo is not good. The fault could be within the viewer, or the photo could have such personal meaning to the photographer that no one will comprehend without background information. Better yet, the image seeks to not be understood, but reaches out on a subconscious level of the viewer; this means the photo has an ulterior motive (i.e.: advertising images). This quote is rather extremely one sided and does not represent the photo world wholly.

I agree with all you said here except that "science is truth". Also this photo is a bit hypocritical because it is explaining itself here.
