Unfit to Print: Contra Mag Uidhir on the Ontology of Photographic Artworks
- Alexey AliyevEmail Alexey Aliyev
AbstractAccording to the orthodox view, photographic artworks are abstract objects. This view, however, has recently been challenged by Christy Mag Uidhir. In his article ‘Photographic Art: An Ontology Fit to Print’, he argues in favour of a nominalist construal of photographic artworks. My goal is to show that Mag Uidhir’s argument is unpersuasive.
