Images function nowadays as words. I produce them and consume them as a form of communication - a way to send a message.

Not long ago, photos fixed reality in two dimensional objects and anchored truth to a materialistic form.
In our times, images no longer have physicality, they are instead fluid information.
I have a feeling that the action of photography today is always a form of marketing.
I wonder, what is the role of photography today?
