It is hard to be a citizen of the world or of a smaller community, and a photographer attempting to explore and portray a personal perception of what he sees about him or her, and not also be aware of the important changes occurring today on various continents, including populist movements and leaders of the right or left in various countries and their apparent questioning of regional identities and the neo liberal global economy that in some instances ignores what they feel as the needs of the citizen. Some thinkers, like the 20th century politician Robert Kennedy, understood the need of defining a public ethic and the role of society in serving all of its citizens. But I do not suggest here a conversation on philosophy or politics, which is not expected on this photography site, but seek instead your thoughts on the question of whether photography (yours) can have a positive continuing and important roll to play in bringing the question of a defined or redefined public ethic to the attention of those in your immediate community, region or nation. We can of course site examples of photojournalists or other professional photographers who have captured scenes that reflect on the public ethic or on certain public causes. But that is not the main intention of my question. Instead, can you, a sometime photographer (or maybe a full time professional), not only take pleasure in creating intriguing or beautiful images, but present visually some elements of your perception of a public ethic that you would like to see defined or enhanced in your own community, region, nation or even the world? One can of course be inspired by existing photographs of this sort, but is it for you a valuable or worthwhile roll for a citizen and photographer, or not, and why? If you feel that your photography can be a medium to better define, re-define or communicate a sustainable public ethic, do you have thoughts on that and can you give some examples of it?
