Click! Photography Changes Everything

Click! Photography Changes Everything

click! photography changes everything is a collection of essays and stories by invited contributors and visitors like you discussing how photography shapes our culture and our lives.

Explore how photography changes Who We Are, What We Do, What We See, Where We Go, What We Want and What We Remember.

The Smithsonian's exhibition about photography entitled "Click!" is a very down-to-earth approach to thinking about photography.  The goal of the exhibit is have well-known people, as well as Smithsonian visitors, tell their stories of how photography affects their lives.  There are six themes in the exhibition: "Who We Are", "What We Do", "What We See", "Where We Go", "What We Want", and "What We Remember".  Each theme has a short video introduction on the right side of the theme's homepage, and the "Where We Go" theme's video is about the Giant Pandas at the National Zoo in Washington, D.C., which have so many fans that take their pictures, that those photographers are called the Pandarazzi.  The "Where We Go" theme also has two great essays with photos about land use, "Photography Changes Our Experience and Understanding of Cities" and "Photography Changes Land Use and Planning".  The "What We See" theme has over a dozen essays, one of which is called "Photography Changes Medical Diagnosis and Treatment" by an ophthalmic photographer.
