Tir Na Saor International Photography Competition
Photography plays a major role in history and in the future. The family photographer, war documentarians, street photgraphers, photojournalists all have one of the most important jobs in the world. Archiving it. With Facebook, Twitter and other media outlets being driven by anyone who has a computer, photography plays an even more important role. They spread across the world in a matter of seconds allowing the opposite ends of the Earth to come together to view what they otherwise would have to wait to see on TV. Visual documentations of important events are now seen as they happen, in real time.
It is more important than ever to record those images that you want to remember. Whether it’s a first birthday, graduation, tragic disaster, epic sunrise or human blight, keep archiving the world around you and keep sharing those images. When you are telling your story to the next generations you can show them exactly what happened as it was, not as your fading memory thinks it happened.
