Is There a Difference Between A Snapshot and a Photograph?

“With a photograph, the person being photographed allows you to look into their world.”

Peter Turnley is a great photographer. I admire his work. I have one his prints hanging in my home.

When I think of photographs of people, I think of posed versus unposed photographs. I prefer unposed photographs. Having said that, either posed or unposed photographs have the potential to reveal something precious and lasting about humanity.

Turnley accomplishes this way more than most photographers, whether or not his subject poses for the camera. That’s what makes his work special.
