“The fact that camera technologies have been an integral part of the process of industrialisation has been as much neglected in social theory as the camera’s dependence on a whole network of industrial practices and production techniques has been excluded from art history. This concatenation of absences skews our perceptions of history, and limits our ability to respond to change in the present.” (McQuire, Scott (1998) Visions of Modernity: Representation, Memory, Time and Space in the Age of the Camera. London: Sage Publications, p. 4)
