Throughout histry, photography has developed to become a field that not only captures the memories of cultures and people around the world, but also helps to shape these memories. The famous saying that: “a picture can sometimes be worth more than 1000 words” has certainly held true in many cases and certain photos, exhibitions and examples of photography stand out as having truly transcended borders and achieved much more than “1000 words” could have, so to speak. Especially in the framework of relationships where people do not share the same language or culture, photography can very often serve as a necessary bridge to unite peoples and to get them to think differently about certain issues or themes.
