The Camera Lies

As I look at a photographic image and or filmic view of myself, I can declare that the apparatuses, (the technologies used and their results) are misinforming: They have attempted to mimic me, but can never produce the complete and absolute manifestations of “I”. That image is not me, it is a reconstruction through the lens; the same as a portrait painter portrays his interpretations of the sitter, his own style, his own brush strokes. THUS THE CAMERA LIES: IT, ALONG WITH ITS TECHNOLOGIES, IMPERSONATES THAT WHAT IT ATTEMPTS TO PERSONATE.
