There is something predatory in the act of taking a picture. To photograph people is to violate them, by seeing them as they never see themselves, by having knowledge of them they can never have. It turns people into objects that can be symbolically possessed.
Susan Sontag / “On Photography”
A very intriguing, thought-provoking quote. I’m really not sure what I think about the sentiment, but it definitely caused me to stop and think. I love that!
