Reasons to photograph
He believed in the mission of photography and its best practices, its ability to witness, to draw attention to injustice and affect social change. – Mike Johnston on Marty Forscher
Sometimes it’s good to be reminded that other people carea about the ability of photography to be a positive agent for change in the world, beyond merely prettifying walls. I also ran across Paul Abbot’s project to document homeless people in London and to share their stories and photos with the mayor in an attempt to keep him to his word – that he will help them with food and shelter etc.
Thanks guys. I needed to hear that.
