4 Reasons Why Photography Matters
Updated: Nov 21, 2020
1. Our photographs tell us what is important to us: Photographs are our personal story, a timeline of our lives filled with faces and places that we love. They are our story, which we can share with others. The hundreds of images come together to form a narrative of our lives.
2. Photographs are part of our legacy: They freeze moments of our lives which pass unremarkably and which seem to have little importance to us at the time. The significance, however, may be for others who search for the person we once were or the places we once knew.
3. Photographs allow us to share and to communicate. Images are much more than a simple record. Photography speaks to the best and most generous part of our human nature – the desire to share what we find beautiful and interesting with others.
4. Photography is a universal language: Our images can express everything from joy and sorrow, to wonder and sympathy. They have the power to grab our attention and speak directly to our emotions. At its best, photography is a powerful language that speaks to us on a deep level. It allows us to tell our story, unite us, and broaden our horizons.
