Every System has a Breaking Point – This is a wonderful article that stresses the importance of photography & video as a historical tool. The following statement from the article sums it up best.
- “All over the world we can witness such instances of a systemic breakdown: where the power structures are changing or where the status quo is overthrown. These changes can happen rather quickly. Photography and video are not simply documenting these changes so that they can be studied in the future, but they are part of the very change. The more we open our eyes to this phenomenon, the more we can recognize that we live in an era of dramatic shifts in our globalized society as the old systems are overcome by new ones.”
