Can Photography Create New Worlds?

"Speak a new language so that the world will be a new world." - Rumi

I want to create images that magnify the unseen (and often simultaneous) moments of beauty and pain around us. I hope those images could start a conversation and even move someone to either appreciate life or change one.

Is this possible? If so, how? I wonder what photographs have had the most impact - either on an individual or on society?
