“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
I recently watched a video in which the speaker lectured his employees on exposure vs. knowledge. He expressed the importance of having both but said that exposure takes you to another level of living. I agree with him on so many levels. Myself having the highest regards for both knowledge and exposure, I’ve never really made a distinction between the two until now. Putting it all into perspective, this led me to gather my own thoughts on the matter.
Though my heart goes out to all those that were killed or injured in the latest attack in Paris, I’ve tried to keep in theme of my blog by continuing business as usually with regards to content; the internet is already saturated without me adding to the list. In addition to that, no intention to sounding insensitive, but acts of Terrorism are being carried out on a daily basis. The difference is, some are high profile, like the one in Paris and others are not, Kenya, Beirut,Lebanon, Iraq, Egypt and Libya, etc.
Terrorism persists because terrorism works. Terrorism works because we let it.
