Photography and citizen journalism…

Why do we photograph?

“We take photos as a return ticket to a moment otherwise gone”.

Photography is as valid a social and cultural practice… as much as any cave or wall painting is of any preindustrial society.

We photograph even mundane, everyday sights because we were there and what we photograph means something to us… Alain de Botton.

Photography becomes the technological link to the natural world and our understanding of it.

Photographers line the railing to capture the sunset from Princes Bridge .
