  • ‘Looking at Photographs’ by pretending its this some sort of great art, we are losing where it has really come from. What we are missing is that privilege of that person who has taken the photograph. When we look at a photo we impose our own opinions and meanings of that photo and interpret it in our own way. We see photographs in everything, everywhere and everyday. When we view photographs as pieces of art the rawness of them are taken away and we are distracted by the beauty of the photograph. Photographs often need captions or texts to explain the main context of them.
