Photographs are prone to digital manipulation, construction and tactical misuse. At worst we are bombarded by a constant onslaught of photographs, and at some point in that flood of imagery we may become numbed to the content of, or questions raised by, any photograph or series. But at best these strange windows still provide a unique way of sharing in someone else’s vision and experience of the world. In doing this they can challenge our presumptions, pushing us to understand situations and ideas that we may have passed by or never had an opportunity to bear witness to. Have your say about the rising, diminished or otherwise power of photography.
