“When we define the Photograph as a motionless image, this does not mean only that the figures it represents do not move; it means that they do not (i) emerge (i), do not (i) leave (i): they are anesthetized and fastened down, like butterflies.” – Roland Barthes, Camera Lucida: Reflections on Photography
