My Capacity for Happiness by Vaughan Granberg (C)
BFA Thesis Exhibition, 2011
documentation of show (excerpt)
To say that being a photographer gives me a unique view on the world would be false. And so too, would it be to say that I live a unique life. But I live and I look, and I frequently press the shutter to document the things that I live and see.
The words describing photography imply violence. The camera shoots, the camera takes. But when it comes to people, the camera, (the photographer,) can only record what it has been given.
“I made this slideshow about my life, about my past life.”
- Nan Goldin
