Asked the girl when she entered the room displaying hair which had been removed from the bodies of people who had just been gassed to death.
What point do photos become meaningless, no longer recording a memory, something to be cherished. But instead simply recording anything which could be considered noteworthy. Theirs something about this nature of photography I've never felt easy with, not everything needs to be recorded, sometimes just seeing them suffice. With a digital camera its so easy to snap, no engaging brain, just pressing a button, and letting it appear on the screen. With film its different, even if you carry infinant amounts of film with you, the images are still choesen, you set it up and think about it. You don't want to waste a shot. For the common snapper its too easy not think anymore, not to make a choice or actually realise what you doing. Not needing to reflect on what your doing, but instead alowing the cammera to make the descion. At that point your no longet human, just a recepticle to press a button. The human becomes remote from everything, this barrier between them and the real being this little electricle thing . And when you get home you upload your pictures and look at them and relise that you took a picture of human hair which had been removed from the bodies of people who had just been gassed to death.
