Today’s Winning Lady in Red
What is a Photo?
Model and photographer unknown. Photography might be the world’s number one hobby, but not everyone is happy. “To photograph people is to violate them, by seeing them as they never see themselves, by having knowledge of them that they can never have; it turns people into objects that can be symbolically possessed. Just as a camera is a sublimation of the gun, to photograph someone is a subliminal murder — a soft murder, appropriate to a sad, frightened time.” —Susan Sontag (1933-2004)
