“A Photograph Is Always Invisible”

The Photograph belongs to that class of laminated objects whose two leaves cannot be separated without destroying them both: the windowpane and the landscape, and why not: Good and Evil, desire and its object: dualities we can conceive but not perceive… Whatever it grants to vision and whatever its manner, a photograph is always invisible: it is not it that we see.
