What are your feelings about the two.


Art exists for the sole purpose of being experienced. It does not have to have any function other than to be itself.

Documentary photography has the purpose of revealing something truthful. If the event portrayed did not happen, or was staged, it is no longer truthful.

Art does not have to be truthful, but a documentary photo does. It can still be an artistic photo and judged on those terms, but it doesn't have to be.
