More Meaning in Photography

In an earlier post I was ruminating about whether street photography could serve a greater purpose or cause. 

I still don’t know the answer but Eric Kim recently shared an article about the powerful images of Sebastiao Salgado. I have greatly admired Salgado’s photographs for a while but I’d never heard much about the man himself. 
The article includes Salgado’s advice  to become educated so that you can better understand the contexts you are photographing. The author reveals how this has played out in Salgado’s own work. 

Perhaps this helps to argue for more meaningful street photography?
