The word "photography" was created from the Greek roots photos, meaning 'light' and 'graphe' or 'representation' by means of lines" together meaning "drawing or writing with light".


Where does photography stand today? Is the idea of photography dead in the digital age or does the photographic image survive in multiple avatars celebrating, archiving, disturbing and investigating every aspect of our lives? Does the photograph stand as a witness or does it spread fake news? Is the photograph evidence? Is the photograph a document or is it somehow a strange and surreal version of our world? Why are photographers getting arrested and killed? Why are we looking at historical archives and why are new photographic archives being created? Is the photographic archive a form of resistance, or activism? Is the selfie a form of citizenship? Is the digital world too fast for us and how do we slow it down? Is photography the way we can look inside our own bodies? Can photography change the world? Is photography dream or magic? Are we obsessed with photography?
