The impact of photography in a developing economy

  • GO Irivwieri

Abstract

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.
