Capturing Our World


FACES Magazine May-June 2022.

Our world in pictures. You can learn so much about places you’ve never been to simply by viewing images. This edition of FACES Magazine looks at how photography has helped shaped our view of our world, and its people, cultures, and history.


Starting with an in-depth look at how cameras work, you’ll get a picture-perfect overview of how photographers capture that perfect moment that evokes an emotion and tells a story. You’ll look at the first cameras (boy were they different than our phone cameras!) and see how technology has let us take pictures of places that we never thought we’d get to see.

Then look back at two centuries of photographs and see how images can help shape our view of history and of worlds we’ve never actually been to. And if you think photobombs are a modern invention, just wait until you see some of these great portrait expressions from the 1800s.
