Human sounds convey emotions better than words do.
We all know a number of non-verbal expressions of emotions like laughter, cries and sighs.
These vocalizations are recognizable across vastly different cultures throughout history.
Emotions undoubtedly play a central role in human lives. They are universally felt by all on this planet.
Photography is important because it can influence our capacity to empathize. It has an incredible ability to convey emotion. It makes us “FEEL” without words, it gives a silent voice to the images.
Photography is more important than ever because we need visual imagery that reflects our connectedness, especially in a world that can be as inhumane as ours.
Photography is powerful because we can place ourselves into the perspective of those we see in an image.
I did a search in the 1x archives and found many images that moved me to tears, laughter, joy or sadness. I hope that through this short gallery, you will not hold back any emotions and will be touched as much as I was by what you see and feel.
Each one of these photographs speaks for itself, all are a silent vocalization of emotions.
Great collection about a great theme! Congrats, Yvette!
