April 11, 2018 Photography Quote John Berger

In the relation between a photograph and words, the photograph begs for an interpretation, and the words usually supply it. The photograph, irrefutable as evidence but weak in meaning, is given a meaning by the words. And the words, which by themselves remain at the level of generalization, give a specific authenticity by the irrefutability of the photograph. Together the two then become very powerful; an open question appears to have been fully answered.”
