Documentary photography shows us exactly what our world looks like at any given moment in time. Whether the pictures are bleak, playful, angering or astounding, they all serve a historically significant purpose.
We look at the change we can bring upon the individual or a community through the pictures. The Pictures are not a mere proof of their lives and struggles, it reflects the intensity at which the affected looks ahead, amidst all the forces pulling them down.
