#Photography: Images Are Stories: The Case for Storytelling Photography
That images are stories is a self-evident truth, not only of photography but of all images, from children’s drawings through the paintings and sculptures found in world-class museums. Images are only one form of narrative or story. We all tell stories all the time. It is through narrative that we humans make sense of things. Stories or narratives are how we relate to the world and how we communicate that sense to others. This is true for each of us and for our societies. It is how we have always done it, as a communicative and social species.
