Photography is a the most popular and fast growing kind of art. What would Vincent van Gogh have photographed if he lived today? Where would he travel to photograph if distances didn’t matter? People and Nature, in any form and capacity, were his main sources of inspiration. Light also played a major role in his paintings. Vincent had the ability to capture light on the canvas in a miraculous way. In fact photography is nothing more than painting with light.
