Photographic Proofs, A Graduate Student Conference “A photograph passes for incontrovertible proof that a given thing happened. The picture may distort; but there is always a presumption that something exists, or did exist, which is like what's in the picture.” – Susan Sontag “But the proof of the pictures was in the reading.
