Ok... debate time. Can photos of existing artworks be good art on thier own, or are they simply documents of someone elses work? Any thoughts?

i think they can be works of art on their own. i mean, anyone can take a picture of a statue that someone else has carved, but not everyone can take a picture of a statue and create a photograph out of it.

this question comes up for me every so often, especially recently when i took my camera to the museum of fine art in boston and took some pictures (if you're interested you can see the photos on my site). some pics i took to document and some i took to create art.

what do you think?
