Poetry, Flattery and Plain Misconception: An Inquiry into the Morality of Representation
Daniel J. Bornstein
This thesis aims to tackle that moment of hesitation that causes me to miss my shot, in the hope of making me as a practitioner more ‘introspectively aware’.
It explores the possibility of photographic representation generating it’s own moral questions, and the plausability of these questions ever being answered. It traverses the very nature of perception, and delves right down to the ontological roots of the medium.
It is about surprises, and intuitions.
It… has been quite a journey for me.
