Description Photography is constantly changing and hard to define. Its discursive and somewhat promiscuous nature has tended to confuse many people as to its staus and value as an art form. The trouble is that it lends itself to many varied uses. We see photography in newspapers, surveillance, advertising campaigns and art galleries, and as fashion shots or family snaps. Meanings can slip and slide depending on context, and the fact that photography lacks any kind of unity and seems to have no intrinsic character makes the insitent cry of 'but is it art?' a constant refrain throughout its relatively short but complex history.
