The subject is: Why Is Photography Important

Due February 25th
In this essay you will make an argument, Why is Photography Important to be exact. This essay contains a central claim that you believe and allows you to demonstrate why your belief is correct or at least logical by using facts, evidence and examples. I want you to defend photography as if it were to be taken away. Let’s pretend for a moment that you live in a world where it is going to be forbidden to have or make photographs. What kind of argument would you make to keep it? Why is it important, not just to you personally, state examples speaking to how it has helped us… See the unseen-such as fast moving objects like a bullet on impact of an apple, an x-ray. Photography also helps us commemorate, remember, communicate a feeling, the way people live in another place or even 100 years ago. Photography does so much more than sell us a new car. So how would you defend the loss of something so important?
