LL1- The Thing Itself – Marlon Nunez

The Thing Itself talks about how the subject of the photograph is different than the actual photograph even though they are in the same area. If i take a picture of a building, and a month later return to the same area only to find out that the building was demolished. When i look  back at the area that the picture was taken from, i will remember the building that used to be there. We believe the picture because that is what we are shown. It is up to the photographer to pick the right moment and capture it so everyone else can see. Nowadays a photograph can be tampered with using photoshop so it is harder for us to believe the picture.

    Certainly a photo captures a moment in time but there are other ways that a photo is different than the thing itself.
