“Photographs furnish evidence. Something we hear about, but doubt, seems proven when we’re shown a photograph of it.” …. “Although there is a sense in which the camera does indeed capture reality, not just interpret it, photographs are as much an interpretation of the world as paintings and drawings are. Those occasions when the taking of photographs is relatively undiscriminating, promiscuous, or self-effacing do not lessen the didacticism of the whole enterprise. This very passivity — and ubiquity — of the photographic record is photography’s ‘message,’ its aggression.” Susan Sontag, On Photography, 1977
