Photography: an ever-evolving art form

‘By April 2012, Facebook users were posting photographs at the rate of 300 million per day.’

‘Make of that what you will, but the fact remains that the most expensive landscape photograph in the world right now is of a scene that never existed.’

‘There are currently more than 100 annual photography festivals worldwide, from Brighton to Bamako and beyond, as well as several big photo fairs such as Paris Photo, Miami Photo Fair and the just launched Unseen in Amsterdam.’
