Why do we share photos?

 

If you think about it, you might reach the conclusion that we take photos and share them because the moment is meaningful to us. Isn’t that the basis of photography? However, since ‘sharing and liking’ photos online has become such an observable behavior, many often seem to capture moments to have a moment, not because the moment itself is meaningful to us.

 

So, to take a moment to get back to basics, Samsung launched the What Matters Most’ campaign on October 13th for the NX camera online community! Basically,if you use any style of NX camera, this campaign is for you. Here’s what it’s all about.

 

What Matters Most campaign

 

First, we should define what ‘What Matters Most’ is. The campaign describes it as ‘what lasts longest as the meaningful moment.’ Therefore, if you take photo of a moment that you, and only you, really care about we think it is worth a share.

 

To give you a better idea of how this is done, Samsung is collaborating with Alex Webb, a professional photographer associated with Magnum Photos, and he primarily works in color, has published 11 books, and has contributed to various influential magazines.

 

Samsung is also working with 11 other photographers, including Ali Jardine, Altug Galip, Chris Ozer, Dave Engledow, Elena Kalis, Halno, KD Kupier, Louis Cole Mike Kus, Simone Bramante and Theron Humphrey. Check out some of their work below.
