Што ја прави една фотографија трогателна? Емоционалната гравитација, вели фотографскиот уредник во National Geographic, Илајџа Вокер, заедно со другите соработници и колеги. Било да е тоа личност, место, животно или нешто друго кое ги разбудува емоциите во спектаторот.
Joao Batista comforts his daughter, Alice, who has microcephaly, at their house in Jordao Baixo, Recife, Brazil.

Вокер вели дека често може да забележи емоционален ударен момент на фотографијата од прв поглед, било да е тоа радост, гнев, тага, изненадување или стравопочит. Најчесто фотографии кои будат најмоќни емоции се оние со луѓе, но тоа не е секогаш правило. Мртва зебра во кадар, на пример, ја евоцира бескомпромисната суровост на животот и смртта.
Anita (left) and Sonja Singh were born with cataracts that their rural Indian family could not afford to treat. When the sisters were five and 12, donors paid for surgery. Eye-brain pathways are more malleable at younger ages, so Anita gained more vision than Sonja—but both now savor new sights, such as these towering reeds. This photo was originally published in “Why There’s New Hope About Ending Blindness,” in September 2016.

“I was at Pulse the night of the shooting. I was on my way home. I was standing at the door when all of a sudden I heard gunshots and all that. And I ran out the door and I didn’t look back.

My heart goes out to everybody that has family that was involved or killed inside that shooting.” – Demetrius Spires photographed on Latin Night in front of The Parliament House Hotel and Bar, a popular gay hang out in the city of Orlando, Florida, June 16th, 2016.
