Shifted position of amateur photography

Michaela Paštéková

Abstract


The amateur photographer used to be defined as a photography enthusiast or a "photographer of everyday life". Since the 19th century, he has liked to join photo clubs, where he improves his technical skills. Has his position changed fundamentally in the 20th and 21st century? What impact does the growth of the Internet and smartphones have on the amateur photography? And how has the world of art responded to the increase of number as well as visibitity of amateur photographs? In our contribution, we will also look at erasing boundaries between amateur, professional and artistic photography through concrete examples.
