“Photography is, first of all, a way of seeing.” Susan Sontag

1. Photography is, first of all, a way of seeing.

2. It is the ineluctably “modern” way of seeing – prejudiced in favor of projects of discovery and innovation.

3. This way of seeing, which now has a long history, shapes what we look for and are used to noticing in photographs.

13. … the seeing, and the accumulation of fragments of seeing, can never be completed.

Susan Sontag (2007) Photography: A Little Summa. In: At the Same Time. London:  Penguin
