The capacity of photographs to evoke rather than tell, to suggest rather than explain, makes them alluring material for the historian who would pluck a single picture from a large collection and use it to narrate his or her own stories. But such stories may or may not have anything to do with the original narrative context of the photograph, the intent of it’s creator, or the ways in which it was used by it’s original audiece. - Martha Sandwiess
