The word aeonian was derived from the Greek word aionios, which means "lasting an age,” or “perpetual”. This is the definition of photography. Since the early 1800s, photography has been used as a window to the world. It captures everyday experiences with beauty and life changing moments with grace. It documents world events and political movements. It captures faces bearing joy, sadness, and anger. It captures first smiles and first steps. Photography allows us to carry the present into the future with a click of a button. This ability is what brings humans closest to being eternal. Photography is a time machine, blending together the past, present, and future. Photography is aeonian.
