I do actually need some help. I've a project about, "What's the function of photography?" I need some passerby comments to guide me through this project of mine.
My point of view:
I feel that the functions of photography is to express our feelings which our inner thoughts couldn't show, capturing the lovely/sad/tragic moments as memories. Everything happens for a moment, and it happen for a reason, photography shall guide us through our lives, teaching us our past, to be a better person. Well, Maybe what I said is just plain crap, but I really wanna know how does a photographer feels about the functions of photography. Be it scenary shots, portraits, still, street, architecture, cityscape or so, why do we actually need photography in our lives?
I hope I can get good respond over this topic, as I've went through national library and my school library, the question is still a suspense to me. I tried my best to search online, but none of them are relevant to my project topic.
If there are kind souls out there could help me with this, please do guide me along with URL/Books title, or even comments. I truly appreciate those who bother to attend to me
