Very interesting video about the use of the camera as a paintbrush or story telling medium that has been utilized as such for many years before it was obvious that staged photos were consciously engaged in the modern age.

 

With a strong insight into work of Cindy Sherman offering up validation of her depicting roles of women in society through story telling and staged constructed photographs in contemporary photography.

 

19th century photographers that used scenes that were common for painting are compared against modern day contemporaries that use scenes that are staged as a means of story telling and the fact that this is not a new thing is considered and showed in balance with photography both old and new conveying the same theme.
