Ruskin’s conception of photography varied throughout his life from an enthusiastic position due to the possibilities offered by the medium towards a criticism of its relationship with the arts, especially with painting. However, one of the most important researchers of the aesthetics of Ruskin, his translator in French, Robert De la Sizeranne became one of the most important defenders of the possibilities of photography as artistic medium. The work of 1899 La photographie est-elle un art? is recognized as one of the influential texts of the movement that will lead to its recognition among the fine arts. In studio we want to present a reflection on the concepts of the Ruskinian aesthetic that have become, in the pen of De la Sizzerane, keys to the affirmation of photography as artistic expression as evidenced by the use of these texts the photographic circles at the beginning of twentieth century.
