You May Be A Photographer, But Are You An Artist?

“When you push the shutter and take a photo, you’re a photographer… but are you an artist?” asks photographer Roger Ballen. “As an artist, I use photography as a medium to express my artistic vision.”

In the 3-minute video above, by COOPH, Ballen offers 7 thoughts to help you become both a photographer and an artist.

Ballen is a celebrated American photographer who lives in Johannesburg, South Africa. His photos are often referred to as “dark,” and he says his images refer to the “shadow side” of humanity.
