...but this is nonsense. Most great artists would never touch or use any other tool than the best one for their purpose or for their kind of art. They would not know what to do with a 4s or any other phone cam.

On of the projects that I mentioned was organised by a well known museum, and definitely not just as a publicity stunt. I won't ramble about how limitations can produce great art; sometimes a very simple tool is the best for the job.

Good point! When I read olyflyer's post my first thought was (regarding the word artist/art)

"You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means."

In other words, people like Ansel Admas and the others like him were just a bunch of amateurs. Too bad this forum did not exist while he was living because otherwise he could have learned that all he needs is a P&S or a cell phone...
