Observations on Art 1.30

Since its invention photography has given us a side of conflict that it wasn’t possible to see before. Unstaged photos convey its emotional side that I personally don’t think the written word can touch. They have the ability to reach out and tug at the heart of the viewer.

Below are two such photos. The bottom was taken on June 18, 2009 in Tehran, Iran. The top was taken just yesterday in Cairo, Egypt.
