The development of Modernism in the arts parallels the rise of the modern industrial society. Photography is finding a mature voice and the quasi-painterly influence of Pictorialism that set its foundations have been set aside in favor of a more dynamic, sharp focus composition with hard lines, repetitive forms and creative camera angles. The contents of photographs, as well as their strength to comment on contemporary society, give them a richer and multi-dimensional voice in the development of the visual arts.
