 Abstract
The paper deals with Robert Scruton's celebrated essay "Photography and Representation", where he develops one of the most influential theories of the aesthetics of photography. Contradicting the general thesis according to which photography is a representational art, his original standpoint marked the beginning of a plethora of debates, most of them referring polemically to his position. Our purpose here is to survey the basic tenets of Scruton's theory as well as to respond to his sceptisim about the aesthetic status of photography.

 Rezumat
În celebrul său eseu "Fotografie şi reprezentaţie", Roger Scruton contrazice opinia general acceptată conform căreia fotografia este o artă reprezentaţională, marcând începutul unor nenumărate dezbateri polemice. Scopul lucrării de faţă este de a releva principiile de bază ale teoriei avansate de Scruton, dar şi de a răspunde critic scepticismului său privitor la statutul estetic al fotografiei.
