DANIEL J. BOORSTIN
The most refined skills of color printing, the intricate techniques of wide-angle photography, provide us pictures of trivia bigger and more real than life. We forget that we see trivia and notice only that the reproduction is so good. Man fulfils his dream and by photographic magic produces a precise image of the Grand Canyon. The result is not that he adores nature or beauty the more. Instead he adores his camera –and himself. - Daniel J. Boorstin - ch. 4 (1961)., The Image : A Guide to Pseudo-Events in America by Daniel Joseph Boorstin , ISBN: 0679741801
