Petter Engman. Topic: Documentary Photography – past, present and future.
By looking at photography one can explore the history, but it’s only a glimpse into the past, fleeing moments that are caught on film or a digital sensor.
Without context and supporting information very little can be understood from a more complex situation and even less trusted as being the truth.
