There is an art to taking photographs of artifacts or artworks in a museum. Think of all the images you’ve seen in photography books or magazines or newspapers–and how you didn’t even think of the fact that they were photographs–or of how those snaps you took with your camera didn’t turn out so well. It takes skill to put art into circulation. Even so, there is little reason not to take it for granted, and in any case photography’s most important museum is found outside the gallery walls.
