well when words become unclear, one can focus with photographs when images become inadequate then we can be content with silence.
When the camera captures an image, it kind of participates in the mortality, vulnerability mutability of the subject. Precisely by slicing out this moment and freezing it all photographs testify to times relentless melt. If you are referring to images without people, well any picture involves two people, the photographer and the viewer.
From behind the camera moments best forgotten are captured, and frozen. Giving the photographer the power to share it with everyone, and share it with future generations but theirs is also the sense of secrets of the picture, or the stuff not known, not seen. One does not know what happened before or after that picture, it is but a frozen moment.
Sorry for ambling into the world of photographs, instead of behind the scene, or front of the camera. The difference between being in front of the camera or behind it, is like the difference between the king and the kingmaker, the king sits on the throne, the kingmaker is the power behind the throne. Here we are talking about privacy.
In the space where I am I think camera is best left alone, be not the display, nor the voyeur, or the peeking jack. As for writing about I would rather write something worthy reading about than be written about.
