The way history is taught to us in school is typically quite rigid and based in supposed fact. Yet, as time goes on and new discoveries are made, our perceptions of our past continually shift.
Particularly since the invention of photography, our historical records have become richer than ever. That still doesn’t mean that we don’t discover all sorts of new photos that change how we imagine our world. In fact, it happens all of the time. And it never, ever gets old.
