ph- ilosophy/otography • judith butler

"the action of the camera itself is either oddly compliant, recording, as it were, without comment, and raising no alarm, or it works as an incitement to orchestrate the scene, but also to extend the scene in time, to keep the scene going, again and allows the event to continue to happen, and i would suggest that, because of the photo, the event has not stopped happening."
