Unfit to Print: Contra Mag Uidhir on the Ontology of Photographic Artworks
According 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 favor of a nominalist construal of photographic artworks. My goal in this paper is to show that Mag Uidhir’s argument is unpersuasive.
