Social Commentary Through Photography

For months, politics had been the hot topic of the folks I attended classes with, so I thought I would document how they were feeling through my photography.

I was asked by many if I was worried about offending people, and my answer was ABSOLUTLEY NO!!!!!!!!!!!  Throughout history photography has documented our worlds social issues and has been shared through various medias so it can be seen in hopes to bring attention and change.

You can’t let fear control what you photograph, document what you see even if it’s not your point of view, because I can’t even imagine what we wouldn’t know if artist didn’t share what they have seen through their art…….

THE ARTS ARE A POWERFUL MEDIUM TO EDUCATE AND EVOKE SOCIAL AWARENESS.
