Perhaps a better way to work toward an understanding of what we mean by fine art photography is to work toward it negatively.
I can see that the technical manner of the Billingham photograph is at odds with the kind of photography that most people who contribute to this site are interested in.
Could we then agree that the term 'fine art photography' as used on this site won't include photography that is deliberately technically very limited? It doesn't mean that if it is unaccomplished technically, it isn't important art - just that it's not the kind of art to which LL attends. (One thing that brought me to this site, and continues to amaze me, is the high degree of technical and craft-based expertise available on this site - incredible.)
So, IF we can agree on that (!), how about another form of photograph that we can exclude? What else is NOT fine art photography as the term's used on this site?
