PHOTOGRAPHY IS NOT ART

Let's say you trained a group of chimpanzees to point the camera and press the shutter randomically.

At the same time you trained a neural network feeding photos taken by amateurs on instagram as bad, photos taken by pros as good. To make it recognize the patterns of a good photo.

And also another neural network to improve the photo contrast, white balance, crop etc.

Then you get all the photos taken by the chimps and pass them through the neural networks. You will get some good photos people may call it art.

Thus photography is not an art.

Something made randomically and then filtered by a computer program can't be considered art.
