Default Re: What distinguishes a fine art photo?

Hi Charlie.
I've been thinking the same thing myself lately. I had some some prints made the other day for a friend at a digital printing lab and they printed them on what they tell me is photographic quality paper and archivally rated at 200 years! Who am I to argue. they looked o.k. Adrian's link is interesting but I think it still doesn't address the issue of the print itself. Most of us intend to shoot for the sake of art in one way or another, but I also want to know what constitutes a fine art 'print', not just a fine art image. I see it advertised on so many photographers websites 'fine art prints'. My question, and I think Charlies question, is more about the physical print itself, not so much the intent.
Regards, Steve.
