From individual mobilisation to collective activism, social consciousness to political discourse, several projects testify to the unique potential of contemporary photography’s involvement.
For some artists, this aim is their core motivation. They dedicate the medium and their practice to a cause. Photography then becomes a voice to raise awarenessabout little known situations, highlight inequalities, point out discriminations.
Without joining the journalistic sphere, the image’s role becomes that of a language in its own right, used to represent and interpret a reality. Ultimately, the picture alone does not matter: scenography and the final aspect of the work enhance its power and impact. What matters is that it tells and makes visible some of the issues of our time.
