really? i thought that it was good for keeping the memories and was easy cause it was in the paragraph prior to mentioning the consequences of photography. Cause remember, it was just talking about the quote " a photograph is like a mirror with a memory" and what she implied by that. It wasnt asking about her overall view of photography.
The question was what does the lines blah blah mean? and the quote was " a photograph is like a mirror with a memory". I dont remember if Sontag said it, but even if she did, you can't get that pohotographs desentisize people from that one sentence. It refers nothing to desentization
And in her essay on photography http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Susan_Sontag
, it says that
"Firstly, Sontag suggests that modern photography, with its convenience and ease, has created an overabundance of visual material."
So wouldn't she mean by "mirror with a memory" that it was easy and convient?
