Is photography stuck in a constantly repeating loop?

The ability to create photographic images has never been more available to the global population; its acceptance as an art form never more obvious in our museums, galleries, magazines and homes. Where once battles were held to place photographs on gallery walls, today blockbuster exhibitions featuring the work of Andreas Gursky, Richard Avedon and William Klein amongst so many others fill the gallery spaces and coffers. Things have changed, that’s for sure, in how we are shown and sold photography.
