One could argue that, out of any technological changes, the advent of photography in the mid-nineteenth century has most fundamentally altered the way we see the world around us. Photography’s influence in our daily lives has been pervasive, and its growing ubiquity and impact over the course of the twentieth century has been intimately tied to systems of belief, power, and ideology. In short, one can no longer help but see the world through a lens.
