After reading Susan Sontag’s book, you will see photography in a completely different light.
“A way of certifying experience, taking photographs is also a way of refusing it – by limiting experience to a search for the photogenic, by converting experience into an image, a souvenir. Travel becomes a strategy for accumulating photographs. The very activity of taking pictures is soothing, and assuages general feelings of disorientation that are likely to be exacerbated by travel. Most tourists feel compelled to put the camera between themselves and whatever is remarkable that they encounter. Unsure of other responses, they take a picture. This gives shape to experience: stop, take a picture, and move on.”
Thank you, Autumn, thank you, camera, thank you, Pumpkin, thank you, Light, thank you, God, for enabling me to take the photos that I’ve always wanted to take.
Köszönöm neked, Ősz, és neked, fényképezőgép, és neked, Fény, és neked, Isten, hogy elkészíthettem a fényképeket, melyeket mindig is szerettem volna elkészíteni.
