The art of photography is an art which was already reached its own maturity long time ago. Its visuality is the modernity criterion in itself. Since factuality is in need of visuality ever increasingly, the importance of photography has been increased within the world of art as much as it is in daily life.Same is valid for modern art as well. All that’s left after all modern art activities is photographs. Despite photographs are objective in itself, they are the best expressive tools for subjective reality as well. From this point of view, we could say that the relations between the photography and the modern art are very inspiring.
