I've often commented that modern day, high quality photographs don't really sit well with me. They make me a little... uncomfortable.
How can a photograph look richer, more vivid, and more detailed than reality itself? It feels a little...'sacrilegious'.
But what is, is - i guess.
The point is, I've mentioned this to many people, and I've drawn many blank faces. Last night however, for the first time, someone understood and felt the same way.
It's really nice, to share familiar feelings :)
They recommended me "Simulacra and Simulation" by Jean Baudrillard.
