Through its history, photography has been an effective force to communicate a point of view or to advocate a cause. Stalin’s USSR used photography to motivate society toward a new social order and economic model. Roosevelt’s New Deal rallied support for an alphabet soup of federal agencies and his political aims. Others, from environmentalists to those advocating new art forms and means of expression, have utilized imagery to achieve their own objectives.

“photography abstracts real time and space…compressing what really happened into a metaphor with its’ own message”
