A photograph is claimed to be artwork when the photographer has created a specific design or defined their picture as artwork themselves.
There is no certain way for something to be art, or an expectation or right, in terms of quality and qualification.
Most photographs taken since photography was invented are not claimed to be artwork. They are only produced for memory or documentation, and they form the majority of commercial photographs. Many portraits are not claimed to be artwork and are therefore worthless witnesses of a time period, except for those who took them or their personal surroundings – just like landscapes on postcards or most photography used for advertising purposes.
