Quote of the Day

waterfall2

 

Here, then, was a paradox of

picture taking that appeared 

from the start. Despite its 

promise of the ultimate

document, of a picture more

realistic than art could

achieve, the camera was also

an instrument of artifice

and posing, even fakery

and deceit. The invention

that enabled people to write

with the sun would blur the distinction between appearance and reality,

between the image and the event.
