Storytelling using visual media, particularly photography, has become a popular approach to exposing events’ unseen truth. It may be a frightening narrative or a joyful moment in human history, but it is not cliched. Conflicts with my personal feelings about pictures for seeing anything in order to bring them to light for the common good have rejuvenated my purpose. Human life has become the core cause of almost every crisis on a daily basis. A photographer is often compelled, deliberately or unknowingly, to enter all of these situations without taking any side. There is no other option but to watch and capture a portion of time in graphic mechanics for photographers to expose to a larger audience.
