In my opinion the distinction between fine art and crafts art is completely up to the individual. While someone might see one thing as inspiring or breathtaking other might see it as just another work of art. Fine art is about meaning being the piece and the feeling when the piece of art is seen but it can also be present with craft art as well. Fine art is said to make a statement but I think its based on opinion. Craft art can have that same effect on an individual based on their personal opinion and style. So overall I don't think there is a set distinction between the two types of art in society. This piece is a photograph which can be defined as fine art because of its meaning of poverty and about the working class but others may see it as just a meaningless photo just proving how opinions is what determines whether it is considered fine art or just another craft art.
