Photography represents the beginning of art “in the age of its technical reproducibility” (Walter Benjamin). From its very beginning it shows the development and emancipation of a medium of documentation with intersections to science, social study, politics, propaganda, self-representation, etc. towards an independent artistic means of expression.
