Drawing With Light

Mapping photography & its links to social, political & aesthetic systems

An attempt to map photography and the dynamic relationships it forms with social, political and aesthetic systems.

A very large percentage of our brain is used for processing visual information; that makes humans highly visual beings. What we perceive from our senses, especially our sense of sight, transform into meaningful representations of the world around us. For a large part the saying “seeing is believing” goes a long way, as people readily accept the image they see whether it is through their own eyes or though a photograph. Photography enables us to “see” and thus “experience” a wide range of experiences through space and time without us having to physically be there.
