This was one of the few in-class videos I have seen that I actually enjoyed, and even learned something from. I was really impressed with how many different aspects of the history of photography were not only addressed in this video, but discussed in elaborate detail. What I enjoyed most about this video was realizing the potential that photography has to unite people. That was made very clear when the video addressed photography in the different wars, and the depression. This video did an excellent job of portraying photography not only as an art, but a language that speaks to all who are willing to listen.
