[…]All of a sudden, our relationship to this thing [photography] changed dramatically. No longer an art form, and no longer a way to document life events, the photograph became a way to communicate and share experiences. […]
Since when art and documents don’t communicate and share experiences? I thought it was the whole point behind them.
Granted that HOW we photograph DID change, it is fair to say that it’s been changing since the very beginning. But if we have a look at WHY we photograph, we will notice that it remains very much the same.
Ask yourself WHY you photograph. Chances are HOW you do it has little, if any, importance.
