Not a photography book but something that Fowles said in connection with regard to the limiting effect of Linnaean taxonomy on our view of nature struck a chord, given its reference to photography:
“Even the simplest knowledge of the names and habits of flowers or tress starts this distinguishing or individuating process, and removes us a step from reality towards anthropocentrism; that is, it acts mentally as an equivalent of the camera viewfinder. Already it destroys or curtails certain possibilities of seeing, apprehending and experiencing….”
Whenever we compose a view in the camera viewfinder we are actually limiting our choices and excluding other possible visual outcomes.
