As Art Week Boston nears, some of us start to think about the state of the art of photography these days, at least what they call “Fine Art” photography, though low art photography, like Lomo and Holga often blur the distinctions by being more artsy than most image-making these days. Europe has a strong history of appreciation for the fine-ness of photography, especially France, as can be seen at the wonderful Paris Night & Day exhibit I wrote about here. Now we have a prominent international gallery setting up shop at the Burlington Mall (high art in low places?). YellowKorner started in Paris–they have nine separate locations in that city alone–but they are truly an international presence, with storefronts in twenty countries and lots of pizzaz in their online site. The local incarnation may be in a mall, but they seem determines to put their best social foot forward with the thing we just can’t resist about French culture, the food. This just came across my desk from the in basket of another PHSNE member:
