Photography "Being and Nothingness" by Hunter Madsen

"Being and Nothingness"

"When any photograph functions for a given person as an Equivalent we can say that, at that moment and for that person, the photograph acts as a symbol or plays the role of a metaphor for something that is beyond the subject photographed.  We can say this in another way: when a photograph functions as an Equivalent, the photograph is at once a record of something in front of the camera and simultaneously a spontaneous symbol."
