What is the role of photography in modern life?

Photography not only tells the story of a person, but it can expand the horizon, talking about a city, a town, a country. Photojournalists and the media play an essential role in showing us what is happening in the world. Images of military situations and natural disasters tend to open our eyes to many things. The first and most common use of photography is to capture important events for future reference.

This is a common practice, to the point that everyone who has an important event wants to include some photos to make sure they can see them in the future and thus refresh their memories of the big events they celebrated. Even before video systems were installed, photographs were very popular. The main historical moments have been documented through photographs. Photography is important because it allows people to see the world from different perspectives.

Thanks to photography, you can admire the most diverse scenarios and situations captured in a frozen moment. Photography is so powerful that it allows you to offer meaningful experiences to others in the form of static images. It allows the dissemination of information about things as they are. The photographs make us stop and think about the times we have lived before.

They create us, all of us at the same time, nostalgic and mental. Birthday parties, weddings, Christmas at home, baby showers, anniversaries, natural disasters, etc. Whatever the event, images capture in all their beauty. They offer us the opportunity to evaluate how our lives have changed or stayed the same.

Through them, we can take a closer look at our lives because they push us to focus on a specific moment.
