Tod Papageorge / Un acte de foi

"As anyone who has used a camera should be reminded, this process is essentially a blind one and, initially, a matter of faith: a photograph is, upon exposure, only a latent image (necessarily unviewable, therefore mysterious) until a negative is produced. But even then, that negative represents something that any photographer, no matter how experienced, can only insecurely imagine as he exposes his film; that is (...), the reduction of the blooming, often febrile, world caught in his camera into a bloodless picture."
