Quote of the day: W.M. Hunt


General Photography

“I maintain that photographs are ultimately unreadable. The seeming representational nature of the medium is misleading because we will not find any real truth. As viewers, we should recognize how much subjectivity we bring to understanding images. We act like prisms. So I have to remind myself that my reaction to or reading of a photograph is mine alone. It is only my truth.” - W.M. Hunt (in: The Unseen Eye, Thames&Hudson/Aperture, 2011, p. 60)
