"You're conflating facts with truth. A camera can record facts, but it's up to the photograph(er) to convey truth and irrespective of something being factual or not" Phil. But, Phil; just love the word but. Isn't there always a but. The reality is Phil, a camera records a little instant in time; the only truth is the photographers truth. And as you know, that truth is just their personal interpretation of their perceived truth. And of course this is very much based on the culture upbringing and their personal view on the world. " some pictures will appear as being more truthful than others. Why is that?" Phil. I think "appear" is the operative word. Don't get your vid. Hey, call me thick. Cold factual truth is the bedrock to walk on. Otherwise, we will believe in fairy tales, and the fairy tale will be the bedrock of our truths. You only have to look at the multitude of cults to understand that simple thought.
