On being a photographer

by theresa balderas

“I believe that in a society in which every individual opinion counts, photography at its best has a unique ability to instruct, to help make alternatives intellectually and emotionally clear, to spotlight falsehood, to spotlight insecurity, to spotlight foolishness, to bring people together, to break down barriers of prejudice and ignorance and show ideas worth pursuing. We should trust the peculiarities of the medium.”
