Social Change

Sometimes, the camera shutter clicks at just the right moment, and the resulting photograph manages to eloquently sum up a complicated time with a single image. We all know those photos: a young JFK Jr. saluting his father's casket, Dorothea Lange's portrait of a migrant mother, a young Ruby Bridges being escorted into her elementary school. However, not every photograph of social change is quite so obvious or well-known. Sometimes it's the little moments -- a certain posture, a change in attire -- that speaks volumes about how far we've come. As the world continues to grow and change, so too will this collection. Join us as HIP explores where we've been and where we're going.
