There was an article in the Observer today about the resurgence of photography as an art form and how the Victoria & Albert museum and Tate gallery are updating their collections.
Being still fairly new to the idea of photography as an art form I’m unsure how this would benefit modern photography. In the days before the Internet museums offered the only opportunity to showcase what would otherwise be locked away in private collections. However in the digital age of blogs, ebooks and tablet computers I would think the ideal place for images is to be out in society to be shared, discussed, manipulated and improved. After all photography is a continually developing art form that is driven by advancements in technology.
