The photograph is intrinsically associated with portraying a true depiction of reality; it is indexical to nature and recent generations have after all grown up with photography as photography has developed. This is especially so with the drastic changes in technology, with both people and technology adapting as technology evolves. I believe as photographs as documents are seen to be true on the most part, this helps to evoke a response from the viewer to do with natural human curiosity. The viewer is naturally drawn to the photograph as a fact of nature and because it was presumably taken by another person there is a connection between viewer and photograph. This is where they potentially infer meaning from the taker’s interpretation of the world.
