30 Examples Of Anger and Rage Photography

by Eric Shafer February 20th, 2012 3 Comments / Click here to post a comment

One of the greatest powers of photography is the ability of expressing one’s emotions through it.  The most powerful photographs out there are the ones that successfully convey a certain mood or emotion.  But to convey an emotion through photograph is not an easy task, and what may seem like a powerful statement in a scene can easily result in a disappointing image.

Anger is a double-edged emotion, as it can lead to social upheaval and progress, or it can degenerate into destruction.  Anger is one of the most primal emotions, and while many other species exhibit irritation and even outbursts of anger, humans are the only species that expresses anger that sometimes progresses to hatred or vengeful behavior.

Here, you’ll find some great anger and rage photographs that combine the raw power of emotional anger with the subtle beauty of photography.

  1. Some really nice shots. You can feel the emotion pouring out of them (or most of them anyway).

    My favourite is probably I’m Feeling Angry Today By Richardo Liberato. Something about that one that made me stop and stare.

  2. Wow. some awesome work here!

  3. I think additional web page entrepreneurs need to get this site as a possible product — quite clean and fantastic design and style, not to mention the information. You’re an authority in this field!
