Houellebecq on photography

…particularly the so called great photographers who pretended to reveal the *truth* with their shots of models: they revealed just nothing! They were just happy to go and stand in front of you and put the camera in action to shoot hundreds of photos in a row, and then later choose the least worse one of the series. There you are, that’s how they proceeded, without any exception, all those great photographers !
