Also, can we say that fashion photography is art?
So please feel free to post your views and answers as this would be very helpful.
Popping a thinking hat on for a moment
I would think the relationship between fashion photography and fine art will be defined by the individual's perspective and accordingly be as diverse as opinions can be.
Looking from my artistic point of view; The general fashion process starts with the designer's ideas, sketches (inspired by ?) being compiled towards a newness or rebirth - a new look for a period of time, before being replaced by the next generation - fashion photography records / plays various roles withiin this whole process, and in its self, becomes an art form (recording past and influencing future).
