On Reading Susan Sontag
One of the points that Susan Sontag brought up was that photography is often used for the typical "group photo." Immediately, it brought to mind a picture I took at my birthday party of my "peeps". Everyone kept grouping together when I had my camera out, when I was actually just trying to take photos of them being their normal geeky selves. This also brought to mind where she spoke about photography about being non-intervention. I tried my best to not intervene, but what can I say....the camera makes some people do the strangest things.
