Let Me Count the Ways

Photography is one of the most popular searches on Artsy. One advantage of The Art Genome Project is its ability to show users the variety of ways in which a medium like photography might be understood–or in other words, the lenses through which it might be looked at–such as according to its techniques, styles or movements, or even its contemporary tendencies. The following list provides some examples. As always, happy searching!
