Defining the photograph

Writer Roland Barthes

‘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
emerge, do not leave:
they are anesthetized and fastened down, like butterflies.’

Roland Barthes in Camera Lucida: Reflections on photography
