The answer should be yes. All photographer's are trying to instil an emotional reaction in those that view their images.
In this talk, Richard Seymour discusses how design of beautiful things is all about feeling, rather than thinking, but he goes beyond this to discuss how as a designer, he has to win viewers of his designs over in nano-seconds. I feel this is exactly the same thing that all photographer's have to do. All photography is about feeling, and sometimes, we think too much, and that gets in the way of 'feeling beauty'.
