Isolation


Photo by ©Omar Upegui R.

“In teaching us a new visual code, photographs alter and enlarge our notions of what is worth looking at and what we have a right to observe.  They are a grammar and, even more importantly, an ethics of seeing.  Finally, the most grandiose result of the photographic enterprise is to give us the sense that we can hold the whole world in our heads—as an anthology of images. 

To collect photographs is to collect the world.  Photographs really are experience captured, and the camera is the ideal arm of consciousness in its acquisitive mood.”
