Painting is not an art. Neither is photography. The two are a type of media, and the working with which is considered a craft. Both can be used as a medium for art, but if a person paints it does not automatically equate to art, and the same goes for photography.
I'm an "art" photographer, and I really want to begin making 'zines as a way to publish my photography and share with others who want a physical, signed piece of my work, but don't have much money to share. I need to look into this!
