Part One.
(Part Two) 

Human activity, human correspondence or inhuman and cruel disdain, refusal and apathy, the reality that is raw from complications, adventures,possibilities or opportunities that the one create for the other or for himself-endless possibilities- with the aim of finding the truth of a more human world where everyone can be stronger and available to 'taste' the life in its entirely and fully mean..
That is 'The photography in the Modern Times'.
Violent passions, complete indifference and all these that characterise not only the undisciplined representation of the human life but the most simple and authentic lines which multiply  in front of the righteous camera joined the union, repulse or attack, associate and amalgamate, divided against itself or multiplied truly copies of emotion,pain, passions, hostility and erotomania from the human race.

 Herbert Matter the graphic designer and photographer wrote in 1944.
'The camera goes further than the human eye.' and in that year this light drawing by him was futured on the cover of the magazine ' Arts&Architecture'.
Herbert Matter'draw'in the air with a source of light while the eye can only partly follow the result, the camera registers,the entire movement, recording it as an abstract pattern.',
explain The Rijksmuseum.
'From the 1920s photography was also deployed as an independent means of personal and artistic expression.Photographers such as Laszio Moholy-Nagy began experimenting with low vantage points, cropping and close-ups.
Light and shadow and forms and perspective feature regularly in these photographs.
Photography swept the art world from the 1960s: artists used photography in their work and museums began collecting photographs.'
