I guess if you are reading this then you are likely to agree that photography is an extremely inspiring medium. Not only does it provide us with a way of documenting our lives at any given moment in time but for many it can be used to improve their quality of life. Take the visually impaired photographers in the first article we have linked to. For them photography provides a different way of experiencing the world. It helps to empower them, provide them earning opportunities and facilitate their social inclusion. For others, such as Daisuke Takakura, photography allows him to explore the idea of self. And for others it can be a way to explore the social climate. Whatever your motivations for taking on photography be sure to use it for your own benefit and, if possible, the benefit of others.
