Creadores de Conciencia

Photography can create awareness in spite of itself, that is, photography is not a language that can be easily controlled, it is something that happens regardless of the professional who takes the photo, but the dissemination of that photograph allows it to reach a recipient, What is the general public, who reacts to that? Yes, photography can create any sensation: ennui, boredom, disappointment, beauty. But also conscience. “What if photography can create awareness? Just look back a bit. Let's think about the Spanish Civil War, about that photo of Robert capa that everyone has in their memory, the one of the militiaman dying. As early as 1936, he wisely layered the power of photography to raise awareness. He came to fight fascism not with a gun, but with his camera.
