Sometimes the Image is the Thing

“Abstraction is idea
without body.
The object photographed may
have nothing to do with
the subject though the
object may be subject.
The photograph may be an
objective document of pure subjectivity.
There are things in the world
that are unseen to the unaided.
There are seens that are not.
If all language is ultimately metaphor,
then don't talk to me of first principles.
It is wrong to assume that in a
photograph there must always have been
something - some thing.
Sometimes the image is the thing.” 

- Roger Newton (1960 - )
