Does photography influence culture or does culture influence photography? The question of which came first, the chicken or the egg? is a question that we may never be able to truly answer.
That said, the two are inseparable. What we do know is that photography’s influence on how we live our lives is so fundamental that it is difficult to imagine how we could have arrived where we are without photography.
So this issue of Curious Frame is about how photography has influenced social justice and has changed how we are experiencing the world more than ever. We are witnessing a major shift in social consciousness the likes of which may have never been seen before.
Photography has played a large role in these changes. We have a rare opportunity to witness history in the making. It has been made so through a combination of photography, digital cameras, the internet and social media.
