ABSTRACT

Photographs provide new and alternative perspectives about the world, of others and ourselves. When the instant ‘point and click’ or ‘point and shoot’ camera entered the nineteenth-century vernacular it changed our consciousness and perceptions forever. In the ups, moving images, montage, time-lapse sequences, live broadcast and instant replay, that have shifted our experience of time and space (McQuire, 1998, p.189). Photography generates social and cultural narratives of life experience; it exposes us to a continual sequence of events allowing us to elicit meaning and to formulate connections to make important reference points and see the world. It helps us to understand other cultures through a visual rhetoric that bridges the interface between culture and society; ourselves and others.
