Powerful Documentary Photography Stories1 Jul 2013
I have discovered the following page: http://121clicks.com/photo-stories/15-powerful-documentary-photography-stories
that looks at telling a story through a photograph.
The photos are very powerful as they show the person or people at precipices of life. Such photos as, just before surgery, the anguish of Dementia, the effects of Tuberculosis, disabled through giving birth, acid violence, violence in East Timor, etc.
They say a picture is worth a thousand words. I think these pictures are worth ten thousand words. They have really caught the emotion that is part of the circumstance. To feel part of the totality of the situation helps you to see more of life. It helps you to see that grief and despair come at all stages of life. There is no escape but there is hope to keep going.
