Susan Sontag on TV

NEEDING TO HAVE REALITY CONFIRMED AND EXPERIENCE ENHANCED BY PHOTOGRAPHS IS AN AESTHETIC CONSUMERISM TO WHICH EVERYONE IS NOW ADDICTED. INDUSTRIAL SOCIETIES TURN THEIR CITIZENS INTO IMAGE-JUNKIES; IT IS THE MOST IRRESISTIBLE FORM OF MENTAL POLLUTION

-SUSAN SONTAG, ON PHOTOGRAPHY, 1977

 

This is instagram, this is selfies, and this is television.  Especially television.
