How Do We Perceive Reality?

“The story is about a photographer (David Hemmings) who takes accidentally photos of a murder in which a woman (Vanessa Redgrave) is (or not) involved in. An interrogation of reality starts.”

Susan Sontag, “On Photography”, 1977

“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.”
