Reality TV

Just like literature and music, movies and video, photography sometimes takes us to places that don’t really exist. It comes from the power of our own imagination, through subtle and hidden suggestion, or even as a result of conscious manipulation.

At other times, our images just show the world as it happens to be: charming or shocking, beautiful or cruel, intriguing or revealed.

I sat idle on a sunny weekend morning, reflecting on these thoughts, while our TV set was reflecting its own bit of reality.
