Famous quotes containing the word camera:

    The camera has an interest in turning history into spectacle, but none in reversing the process. At best, the picture leaves a vague blur in the observer’s mind; strong enough to send him into battle perhaps, but not to have him understand why he is going.
    Denis Donoghue (b. 1928)
