"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 posessed.Just as the camera is a sublimination of the gun, to photograph someone is a subliminated murder -- a soft murder , appropriate to a sad, frightend time."
-Susan Sontag : On photography
