The Greatest Photo Galleries

Art galleries are an important factor in our society. Whether we know it or not, art galleries possess information about our history as a society. The artifacts, images, paintings or historical writings, depict a certain time in our history. Art galleries act as a time capsule full of individual pieces of our human existence.*

Photography galleries are no different. They have captured images of a time frame in our history that played a part of who and what we are today. Many photographs bring back nostalgia of that moment (for those who lived through it), feelings of that time and a record of what was occurring during that period. Photography galleries work in a hierarchy system, where certain galleries will carry certain images. You have some photography galleries that have (to name but a few):

  • Pop culture, photographs and images
  • Political and patriotic images
  • Archaeological photographs
  • Film photography
  • Art and lithographed images

Some photography galleries can have some of these classifications or all of them. They are usually grouped together according to imagery, style and subject matter. Some galleries, arrange these photographs in a chronological manner from the viewer to understand what was happening during that time frame. Usually a brief history of photography at that time frame is mentioned along with the role and importance of the particular image in society is portrayed. The idea behind the chronological time line is to help the viewer visualize the era in which the image was taken.
