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.
