"We do not grow absolutely, chronologically. We grow sometimes in one dimension, and not in another; unevenly. We grow partially. We are relative. We are mature in one realm, childish in another. The past, present, and future mingle and pull us backward, forward, or fix us in the present. We are made up of layers, cells, constellations."

- Anais Nin (via cabaretfurs)

The Right to Photoshop
“But we know better. The photograph is a far more selective, subjective object. In “In Plato’s Cave,” Sontag argues that each click of the camera “is haunted by the tacit imperatives of taste and conscience.” Each image we see is a selection, often of a woman’s “best angle” or “good side.” This selection is a sort of veil in its own right, disclosing one possibility of our look and foreclosing many others.  To my mind, the error of those who seek to investigate and reveal is in situating the ‘veil’ on the side of Photoshop, when it originates from the act of representation in the first place.”
