usable quotations


3p  --  To collect photographs is to collect the world. Movies and television programs light up walls, flicker and go out;but with still phtographs the images is also an object,light-weight, cheap to produce, easy to carry about, accumulate, store.

4p  -- To photograph is to appropriate the thing photgraphed. It means putting oneself into a certain relation to the world that feels like knowledge - and, therefore,like power.

     -- Photographed images do not seem to be statements about the world so much as peices of it, miniatures of reality that anyone can make or acquire. Photograhs, which fiddle with the scale of the world, themselves get reduced, blown up, cropped, retouched, doctored, tricked out.

8p  --  As industrialization provided social uses for the operations of the photographer, so the reaction against these uses reinfored the self-consciousness of photography-as-art.


9p  -- As photographs give people an imaginary possession of a past that is unreal, they also help people to take possession of space in which they are insecure.( Thus, photography develops in tandem with one of the most characteristic of modern activities;tourism)

    -- A way of certifying experience, taking photographs is also a way of refusing it - by limiting experience into an image, a souvenir......Most tourist feel compelled to put the camera between themselves and whatever is remarkable that tey encounter. Unsure of otheer responses, they take a picture.

??? what about the attitude of people look for the right angle and better picture ruin their own experience?

11p  -- A photography is not just the result of an encoundter between an event and a photographr; picture-taking is an event in itself..... After event has ended, the picture will still exist, conferring on the event a kind of immortality ( and importance) it would never otherwise have enjoyed.

12p -- The person who intervenes cannot record; the person who is recording can not intervene.

14p -- Manufacturers reasure their customers that taking pictures demands no skill or expert knowledge,that the machine is all-knowing, and responds to the slightest pressure of the will. It's as simple as turning the ignition key or pulling the trigger.
 
   14-15p -- Just as the camera is sublimation of the gun, to photograph someone is a sublimated murder - a soft murder, approptiate to a sad, frightened time.

15p -- Guns have metamorphosed into cameras in this earnest comedy, the ecology safari, because nature has ceased to be what it always has been- what people needed protection from. Now natue - tamed, endangered, mortal - needs to be protected from people.

  -- All photographs ar memento mori. To take a photgraph is to participate in anothr person's( or thing's) mortality, vulnerability, mutability. Precisely by slicing out this moment and freezing it, all photgraphs testify to time's relentless melt.

16p -- While an untold number of forms of bilolgical and social life are being destryed in a brief span of time, a device is available to record what is disappering.

17p -- Photographs may be more memorale than moving images, because they are a meat slice of time, not a flow.

+++ scenes from movies to be used for their posters can bring back all the story back to the viewer, like photographer can be reminiscent of. This is mass scale of reminisecence for the people who watched them. so experiencing film is sharing story without any restriction of time and space.

      more about documentary photo & photo jurnalism
22p -- The "realistic" view of the world compatible with bureaucracy redefines knowledge - as techniquew and information.
     -- The presumption is that, for such readers, a photograph could only illustrate the analysis contained in an article. A new sense of the notion of information has been constructed around the photographic image......In a world ruleed by photographic images, all borders("framing") seem arbitrary. Anything can be separated, can be made discontinuous, from anything else; all that is necessary is to frame the subject differently.( conversely, anything can be mae adjacent to anything else.)

23p -- The camera makes reality atomic,manageable and opaque. it is a view of the world which denies interconnectdeness, continuity, but which confers on each moment the character of mystery.

24p -- The omnipresence of photographs has an incalculable effect on our ethical sensibility. By furnishing this already crowded world with a duplicate one of images, pphotography makes us fell that the world is more available than it really is. Needting to have reality confirmed and experience enhanced by photographs is an aesthetic consumerism to which everyone is now addicted.

  -- Ultimately, having an experience becomes identical with taking a photogaph of it, and participating in a public event comes more and more to be equivalent to looking at it in photographed form.
