The use of photography is moving towards a new crossroads to inform and influence perspectives on contemporary issues. Democratization of the camera means many points of view will spotlight the political agendas. Expression is vital to the health of society even if that expression is later regretted. Can Art & the City help to win over the anti-cultural negativity growing in our cities. Reports from Antwerp, Brussels, and Rotterdam suggest this negativity is about to show itself in a more visible manner. Art & the City should also be more visible in supporting a counter culture against this negativity.
