Today photography goes far beyond the fixation of memories. The volume takes up Bourdieu's well-known research for the social uses of photography in the mid-1960s. From this it is clear that once the shots of non-professionals, mediated by the habitus class, intercepted the best moments of social life and the typicality expressed by a shared culture. While the photos of professionals are inspired by decisive moments in the authorial sense in various areas (reportage, fashion, landscape, advertising ??). Today, by virtue of social acceleration, we are uncertain about the direction of history. All phenomena are potentialities of the world; potential of the self all selfies. The lines of sociality are drawn by photography, which is an active and media language in the relationship with oneself and with others. This is a history of sociology that is about to happen, between the fifties and sixties of the last century, taking into account the reflections produced by neighboring knowledge and the effects that the current overload of images is on photography. The author collects the opinions of fifteen photographers involves a different diversity, known and less known, who practice in the various fields of professional photography: Vincenzo Zaffuto, Giuseppe Mazzola, Gabriele Lentini, Alfredo D'Amato, Fabio Sgroi, Francesco Faraci, Tony Gentile , Giacomo D'Aguanno, Fabio Savagnone, Max Serradifalco, Antonio Biasiucci, Salvo and Dodo Veneziano, Giuseppe Sinatra, Ferdinando Scianna
