Laurakhoury's curator insight, February 21, 2013 6:21 PM

A very interesting article

Laurakhoury's comment, March 10, 2013 9:24 PM
Note the connection between photography and sociology according to the prominent sociologist Howard Becker: "At first, some photographers used the camera to record far-off societies that their contemporaries would otherwise never see and, later, aspects of their own society their contemporaries had no wish to see. Sometimes they even conceived of what they were doing as sociology, especially around the turn of the century when sociologists and photographers agreed on the necessity of exposing the evils of society through words and pictures."
Laurakhoury's comment, March 12, 2013 10:35 AM
"Both photographers and sociologists have described communities."
