How We Question Privacy
Photography has been just as an effective medium of giving people an insight into the extreme and the highly personal ways of living.The power of photography cannot be underestimated; it captures closeness that words can never express. Some of the greatest photographers have caught beautiful moments in history from inside peoples’homes.An intimate photograph of a family doing absolutely ordinary things tells you so much about the people in it.
Well-regarded photographers such as Martin Parr, Sally Mann and James Mollison to name but a few, have managed to construct photographs that illustrate the intimacy of the everyday. They have exposed the domestic realms for others to see and appreciate. Even our own family photographs are portals into the realm of private life.
