There have been photographers since the camera was invented. Forget about the camera, people conveyed the expressions and landscapes of the people and places around them for centuries. Think of paintings that served as photographs – lovingly created by artists and painters in an attempt to still time. Since then, no matter if you’re a professional photographer or an amateur one, work has been shared.
This could mean from just hanging a print of your work in your home to having an exhibition in a gallery, from posting it on social media or just sharing with family and close friends via a photo album, but our work has always been shared.
Some pictures are more candid and different. Imagine your friend is taking a shot of a beautiful landscape of a setting sun, and you take a picture of them taking that picture. It’s like a small chain. Many times they know they’re being photographed or it’s utterly candid but such kinds of pictures are a break from the norm. Even the concept of the selfie is like a photo spotter, but not quite.
The days before smart phones were invented, people would take photos of themselves in mirrors to capture their reflections – the pre cursor to the selfie, it was nonetheless popular and whether it was the photographer themselves capturing their own expressions or another photographer capturing their action of photographing something, photospotting was born.
This does seem rather confusing but photography is the art of capturing the world round you, and that world could be anything. There have been some very famous photographers and their works over the years that have gained considerable media attention.
