Implications - In art, photorealism is a much-admired property of certain works, as it blurs the line between fantasy and reality. In particular, the rise of digital photography has heightened the consumer appreciation for hand-painted works that resemble photographs because of the dedication, talent and attention to detail these works clearly require.
