The importance of photography in todays modern world is on show all around us, from images on social media applications that share experiences and emotions to the bill board you drive past on your way to work. Without photography we would as viewers be missing a vital stimuli to our senses.


When we examine how photography conveys a message we see that it helps us to communicate with others, It can make complicated explanations easier to understand and acts as a partner to verbal communication. My aim as a photographer is to make high quality images accessible to everyone, I aim to break down experiences is into moments captured in time.

As an art form we can express our feelings through photography by displaying work in a gallery and inviting visitors to interpret what we produce for themselves. By this another dimension of the world opens up to people allowing us to view insights into other peoples lives.
Photography truly is an art form to be admired, studied and celebrated.

One of the main uses of photography is obviously to capture memories, this has been done for centuries through painting but on the invention of photography it has had a similar use. Generally people capture pictures of loved ones and experiences they have had with them, special occasions and celebrations.

Images are used in todays media channels to capture the news for newspapers and magazines, Journalists go through hundreds of images everyday in pursuit of the best image for a story and the photographers have the mammoth job of capturing these images for a huge audience to see. So you see photography is important for many reasons but now its up to you to decide how you would like to incorporate it into your own lives so it can have some meaningful importance to you personally.
