Photography is the world's most popular hobby. We use it to document family milestones, capture beauty, reveal the ugliness of war and stalk celebrities. Photography has changed the world way more than any other thing in the media (because photography is used in film and television).Our world no longer has its focus on words and paintings but now it is focused on the photograph. Photography has completely changed how we perceive ourselves and the world. During the American civil war, the people were shocked by the photographs of battle when they were published in the newspapers. This was the first time war had been photographed for the public, and the first time they had seen the reality of death. Before this they only heard stories and were told of the heroes but these stories were not always true. When they saw the pictures, the fields of the dead, the blood on the ground, people running around with a gun in their hand and blood all over their body, their ideas of war were totally changed. They had heard of death but actually seeing it was a whole different story. They began to look at war as a more serious life or death situation.

Photography has completely changed the world, our lives and our opinions on things. Photography is not just a picture on a piece of paper it is used in movies, Television, and in the newspapers .

How did the invention of photography impact the art world in general?

Photography was the perfect solution to art in the time of the enlightenment; scientific, reasonablewithout unnecessary flourishes. However the invention of photography changed the value of art - it could no longer be stated that art made after the invention of photography was only valuable as a snapshot of that time period; for that was the job of the camera. In a sense art was given a higher value as it portrayed a personal perception connected with historical events and philosophy.
