The Impact of Photography in a Developing Economy

GO Irivwieri


Photography as an image–making process is not quite appreciated by
budding artists and professionals as an art form. This study is thus aimed at advancing photography as a versatile creative medium of expression and a veritable tool for research and skill acquisition for employment generation irrespective of one’s chosen career. A number of literatures were reviewed to elicit information about the subject content of photography which discussed the characteristics, types, phases in its historical development and its role in a developing economy. It is found out that photography is a potentially great creative art. In consequence, both professionals and amateurs are encouraged to take to photography not only as a recreative venture but as an employment generation medium for sustainable growth in a developing economy.
