via Newsweek: Post-mankind Vision of Photographer Lori Nix
6. In your opinion, what are the most important things (whether bad or good) that photography should offer/convey to viewers?
Photography is very subjective and every person will come away with something different from the same picture. My personal opinion is that photography should elicit some form of emotion in the viewer, be it awe, anger, or humor. Photography should also introduce the viewer to a new perspective. (Lori Nix Q&A)
