"Like guns and cars, cameras are fantasy-machines whose use is addictive. However, despite the extravagance or ordinary language and advertising, they are not lethal. […] The camera/gun, does not kill, so the ominous metaphor seems to be all bluff—like men’s fantasy of having a gun, knife, or tool between his legs.  Still, there is something predatory in the act of taking a picture. To photograph people is to violate them, by seeing them as they never see themselves, by having knowledge of them they can never have; it turns people into objects that can be symbolically possessed. Just as the camera is a sublimation of the gun, to photograph someone is a sublimated murder—a soft murder, appropriate to a sad, frightened time.” —Susan Sontag, On Photography
still from Duet for Cannibals (Susan Sontag, 1969)
