The camera never lies, we’re told. The cliché expresses the misleading view that photography is representational, holding up a mirror to the world and reflecting it without distortion. Yet even a realistic image, like a good work of fiction, can lead the mind into hidden narratives and open avenues of symbolic discourse.
It, therefore, works well to use photography as the deceptive subject matter of a broader meditation, as Ivan Vladislavic does in Double Exposure.
