Ian Bogost - The Illusion of a Literal Description
"A photograph has to be rational. It has to be rational in itself. It has to be rational and complete. ... it is the illusion of a literal description of what the camera saw. From it, you can know very little. It has no narrative ability. You don't know what happened from the photography. You know how a piece of time and space looked to a camera." As usual, I'm reminded how much I love Gary Winogrand.
