We are now entering a phase when the quality and quantity of information in a single frame from a sequence of moving images is such that there will be no need to take individual pictures. Just shoot continuously and pluck out the best moment afterward. Still-photography will then become purely ex post facto, entirely a matter of editing.

"The city, however, does not tell its past, but contains it like the lines of a hand, written in the corners of the streets, the gratings of the windows, the banisters of the steps, the antennae of the lightening rods, the poles of the flags, every segment marked in turn with scratches, indentations, scrolls."
Italo Calvino, Invisible Cities (Harcourt, 1972, p. 11)

"We have kept saying ‘never again,’ but it keeps on happening, again and again—in Syria today, in the Central African Republic tomorrow. Without an idea of action, that sense of solidarity atrophies."

Maybe the only thing each of us can see is our own shadow.

Carl Jung called this his shadow work. He said we never see others. Instead we see only aspects of ourselves that fall over them. Shadows. Projections. Our associations.

The same way old painters would sit in a tiny dark room and trace the image of what stood outside a tiny window, in the bright sunlight.

The camera obscura.

Not the exact image, but everything reversed or upside down. Distorted by the mirror or the lens it comes through. Our limited personal perception. Our tiny body of experience.

One of the fascinating elements of “The 25 Stages” is the extent to which, as a story, it plays with the card form itself. Notable in their absences are the couple’s most intimate moments: their wedding night, the news that they’re going to have a baby, the birth of their son. Notable in its emphasis, on the other hand, is their third date, which warrants five of the 25 cards, and cheekily moves the list’s frame from “stages of romance” to “story of romance.” (via Victorian Buzzfeed: ‘The 25 Stages From Courtship to Marriage’ - Megan Garber - The Atlantic)
