- Truth, Accuracy and photography

,  par Hervé BERNARD dit RVB

All photographs are accurate. None of them is the truth.

Richard Avedon

Photography deals exquisitely with appearances, but nothing is what it appears to be.

Duane Michals

All photographs are memento mori. To take a photograph is to participate in another person’s (or thing’s) mortality, vulnerability, mutability. Precisely by slicing out this moment and freezing it, all photographs testify to time’s relentless melt.

Susan Sontag
