Photography is this big art and industry that makes us believe stuff that when unseen, seems unbelievable. Right now, there are Nashville photographers somewhere in Africa, taking pictures of lions and giraffes; there are journalists with cameras witnessing revolutions in

Of course, we are learning so much stuff in school without seeing images of everything and we know it’s true. But, somehow that’s what we like to do, we love looking at different pictures and see how it is. I remember in biology classes, even the pictures of worms were interesting for me. Photography gives a certain grade of authenticity to an event, a thing or a phenomenon.
So, how do you know what the moon looks like from a closer view? There are pictures of it. Photography even touched the rest of the universe. Isn’t this mind blowing? It definitely is.
I’ve just heard people so many times saying “I know it is true/ I know how it looks like because I’ve seen an image of it” and it makes perfect sense. You get to believe better what you see than just what you hear about. This is the whole idea of the photography. It is the art that makes us see, feel and believe.
So how do you know it’s true? Simply, there is a photograph
