a tribute to Jean Baudrillard

"Then, on one of my trips to Japan, I was given a camera, and I began to try it out a bit, taking photographs from the plane on the return journey..." 1

"I like photography as something completely empty, ‘irreal’, as something that preserves the idea of a silent apparition." 2
