Photography

As an art form and a creative expression.Our brain starts to process pictures/images since the day we born.We see all kind of images around us such as faces,sceneries,animals,building,etc.
To record historical and important events and incidents.There is probably nothing the human brain is more sensitive to than the images we see but we cannot recollect the memories,hence we need photographs.We sometimes react and respond to what we see without realizing or analyzing the consequences.
To imprint into our mindset icons and logos as in commercial advertising.Pictures work like icons or a shortcut that access to our memory and trigger our feelings as if it is part of our auto reflexes.

There are a lot of moments and memories in our lives that we might forget if we didn’t have pictures,such as people and places in our past, friends and loved-ones that have passed on. Without pitures of them,we would not be able to look back on them with fond memories. People who have lost someone when they were very young, or even before they were born, would never get to see what they looked like. Pictures play a very important part of our lives! It’s a link for us to have a connection to our past.

Though we differ in the way we look and things we believe in, there’s something we all share: emotion. Human emotion is innate in all of us; it’s something we’re born with and something we die with. Happiness, sadness, love, hatred, worries, and indifference – these are things that constantly occur in our daily lives.
