Photography- The Path to Art

- If asked, one’s interpretation of what classifies as forms of art may vary from visual arts, to literary arts, based on one’s individual opinion. These opinions are produced through the influence of one’s individual lifestyle and society in which they live. If a street artist was asked what forms of art exist, one may give examples on urban artistry with an underlying motive, while a professional architect may give examples of geometric, unique designs from past work. The backbone to art in itself is the concept that it is a manmade creation of something from the mind, whether it be based off of preexisting or new influences in the world....   [tags: self-expression, art critics, opinion]

Slavery : A More Personal And Opinionated Version By James Mcpherson

- Slavery is an issue that continues to be discussed today, and for most Americans, the main reason that sparked the Civil War. Both authors agree that slavery was morally wrong, and it almost brought the Union to its knees while trying to rid the nation of it.
