Changing how stories are told
Telling stories is a distinctively human trait. Whether it’s fiction, history, mythology, gossip, daydreams, news, or autobiography, stories permeate every aspect of our lives. Visual storytelling can be traced back as far as the earliest paintings on cave walls, which would have been gazed upon and enjoyed by people of all ages. Advancing technologies such as the printing press, the camera and the internet has changed storytelling from a passive to an immersive experience – whether it’s visual stories in photographs, spoken stories in videos or interactive stories in gaming – the magic of storytelling is more alive than ever.
