Is Photography dead

I felt this Newsweek article has many truth about this new medium. Even though it has been around for years, there are still parts of this medium that are still being made known. I really like how this article brings to life the fact that we use photography on our mobile phone. "Until the beginning of modernism,the most admired quality in Western art was mimesis- object in painting and sculpture closely resembling thing is real life." I think that real life in photos has a value that can not be explained unless you are there to see it. If you ever look at a photo you have taken in the past weeks, then edit it, some would say that you are killing the real thing you just took a picture of. I believe that you are just trying to show the best of the picture.
