How strange history strikes us. With a polaroid of photoshop value. But look at that fingerprint just off to the right. How banal, how human, how present that is as opposed to Lucas Blalock’s virtual hand. There is no equal to the reality of a touch, of a spiritual interaction with photography. With a polaroid, photoshop worthy or not. The dust polishing the humanity.
