Description

My project examines a critical history of photojournalism as it relates specifically to the field of social justice photography. I will present an influential photograph from each decade and briefly summarize the impact, intention, and purpose of these photos. I will then address some larger questions and implications of these photographs and their relationship to social justice. This topic is important because it foster a contextual understanding of the term “social justice photography.” The main questions that I will attempt to address are as follows: How has the creation, influence, and reception of social justice photography evolved over time, and what implications does this have for modern endeavors in the field?
