Photographic

It was John Grierson (1898-1972), the father of the documentary film, who observed that the time would come when cameras recording people's lives would no longer be in the hands of professional photographers and film makers but would be in the hands of 'the people' themselves. That time came some decades ago for still pictures and is now, through digital technology, true of moving pictures.
