Normal photographs are made by using the ordinary light reflected from objects to burn patterns into photosensitive chemicals on a piece of film, and then enlarging and reversing that negative image, burning it into a piece of photosensitive paper, and chemically ‘fixing’ it. It is an explicit, or explicate representation; with differing degrees of accuracy, you can match up one square inch of the picture with a corresponding area of the object depicted, in a one-to-one isomorphism.

Large sensational photographs made their first appearance, with the topics of sex, violence, accidents and scandal as their major themes.

More beautiful than fabulous pictures.

You shall not make any images of me.
