we are all thieves, right?- travis shaffer

After listening to Travis Shaffer’s lecture i found it hugely interesting that many bodies of his work uses images that he has not captured his self but how he calls them recycled from google maps or even using images that people have taken of them selves and uploaded onto Flickr. It is really interesting to think about the fact that now photographic equipment is quick easy and fast that everyone takes pictures, rather than experiencing an experience we now take a picture of the experience to recall it later on, i really liked him images of turning the camera around to then take pictures of the people taking pictures, it has become a way of human communication now, as Travis says technology has evolved and so has the camera and now we can just use an iPhone to take a quick image rather than using wet plates.
