About the Book
I am a camera. I don’t think, I don’t feel, I have no emotions. I make an image of a micro-instant of time. You have feelings. You think and you have the capacity to make judgments. I don’t have that ability. But in that micro-instant of image making I can influence your thoughts and judgment.
Do you see in these images people alone, isolated with no connection to society? Is this our society, one in which we communicate virtually rather than face to face? Maybe. Or perhaps I’m the one that doesn’t relate. Could it be that I choose to get up close, eliminate the surroundings, hide and then steal an image without revealing myself.
