Unfit to Print: Contra Mag Uidhir on the Ontology of Photographic Artworks

http://aesthetics.ff.cuni.cz/archive/432/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 favour of a nominalist construal of photographic artworks. My goal is to show that Mag Uidhir’s argument is unpersuasive.
