In a dialectic between art and sociology, the investigation merely touches on scholarliness, and takes the angle of the subject as it tries to paint a picture of the changing dynamics of the role and significance of photography in the media.
All of these questions are based on a thesis published in 2006, a few photographs that appeared in the press, and the related personal experiences and thoughts.
