The Camera is an apparatus to shed the light from the dark, the view of the world worth preserving from the one you allow yourself to forget, remember the moment you deem decisive and discard the myriads of constellations you consider irrelevant; the good (picture) from the bad. The camera is an apparatus of Morality.
“He even whispered in my ear: “You suffer; you will suffer more. But this time I am on your side. You will be free. You will, I promise you.” ― Henri Charrière, Papillon
We slip, we catch ourselves and then this catching-ourselves becomes the actual slipping.
