PHOTOGRAPHIC COMMUNICATION - "Photography is a powerful communications tool because it communicates instantly and reaches beyond borders and cultures within a glance. No other media approaches the realistic credibility of a photograph. In fact a photo is often responsible for most of what is remembered from a given communication. Often delivering multiple messages in one image. The Photographic industry is evolving rapidly and this site exhibits the work of talented professionals on the leading edge creating photographic illustrations that deliver messages with impact." - Garnet McPherson

The Super Powers Of Images
A photograph can tell a story better than words because it has the power to capture a moment in time and convey emotions, atmosphere, and context in a single image. Words can add unseen textures to a story but not as much impact.
- A photograph is a universal language that transcends barriers such as culture, language, and literacy. Anyone can understand the emotions and message conveyed by a photograph, regardless of their background or level of education.
- A photograph can convey a story in a way that words cannot match. The visual impact of a photograph can create an immediate emotional response in the viewer, leaving a lasting impression that resonates long after the image is viewed.
- A photograph can transport the viewer to a different place, time, or culture, offering an immersive experience that can be difficult to achieve with words alone. The viewer can explore the details and nuances of the image, imagining themselves as part of the story.
- A photograph can capture a moment in time that is timeless and memorable. It can preserve a unique and fleeting moment in history, conveying a message or emotion that will remain relevant for years to come.
- A photograph can simplify complex information and convey it in a straightforward manner. A single image can summarize an event, a concept, or a complex idea, making it easier for the viewer to understand and remember.
Photography excels at telling a stories because it has the ability to capture emotions, concepts, information, and context all in a single image, creating an immersive experience that transcends barriers and leaves a lasting impression on the viewer. It actually has to ability to inform our view of the world we life in and it has become the single most powerful tool in the world of communication.
Garnet McPherson is the author of several books on visual media and and in this book he explores the state of photographic image making and its evolving social and cultural impacts.
Like in most of modern culture changes are happening at an accelerating pace yet not all of these changes will be good for the human race. Our development in technology has outpaced our cultural and social development and that disconnect poses problems for our future.
The Evolution Of Image Making
Photography has evolved greatly in terms of its function in society since it was first invented in the 19th century. In his new book Garnet McPherson explores the many powerful roles that photography plays in modern society and how as technology evolves, the applications and implications continue to evolve.
Documentation: In its early years, photography was primarily used as a tool for documentation. Photographs were used to capture and preserve images of people, places, and events for historical or archival purposes. With the development of digital photography its ability to document has expanded into security, science and technology applications that are now woven throughout our culture.
Artistic expression: As photography became more accessible, it began to be used as a medium for artistic expression. Photographers began to experiment with different styles and techniques, using photography to express their creativity and vision. New technologies are now adding impressive possibilities to the pallet of the photographic artist.
Journalism: Photography played a crucial role in journalism, especially during times of war and conflict. Photographs captured the realities of war and social injustice, helping to raise awareness and spark change. However photo journalism is in the midst of a fundamental transition.
Advertising: Photography also became a key medium in advertising, with companies using photographs to promote their products and services to a wider audience and now augmented reality technology has added a whole new set of possibilities to advertising imaging.
Social media: The rise of the use of cel phones and social media has led to an explosion in the use of photography as a means of communication. People now use photographs to share their experiences, connect with others, and express their identities yet this too is about to go through a transformation.
Video: Combining motion photography with sound has transformed communication of dynamic story telling capabilities that is of course now ubiquitous across broadcast and digital media around the world attracting more traffic than other content and still growing audiences. Just as digital video transformed the industry, AI has now opened a whole new set of possibilities in the video and film making industry.
Imaging is on the threshold of huge technical transformations which will change its role in our culture.
In "The Evolution Of the Lightsmith" Garnet explores these changes and what it will mean to our future.
