A photograph speaks about passion. Only a person who is interested in others, or in nature, or events, or sports or wildlife tend to take photographs. Others take selfies.
A photograph can rise to the level of art and the classic.
The photograph by the famous French Photographer Henri Cartier Bresson of Nehru announcing the death of Gandhiji saying, “The light has gone out of our lives,”
The Vulture and the Little Girl by Kevin Carter taken in Sudan,
The famous kiss marking the end of World War taken in New York by Alfred Eisenstaedt titled V-J Day in Times Square,
The Pulitzer Prize-winning photograph Napalm girl taken at Trang Bàng during the Vietnam War by Nick Ut,
The photographs taken by the first man on the moon Astronaut Neil Armstrong of Edwin Aldrin on the moon
and not to forget NASA’s Pale Blue Dot taken by Voyager from outer space are all examples.
A collection of photographs can communicate a world of emotions and thoughts especially when tribute to a life is made through them. Through these photographs life of the person remembered is made still for those of coming generations to see.
