Plurality should be seen as a virtue but in general it garners mistrust. The photograph hitches a ride on the real but we have lived too long to believe it. The photograph is seen to yield. Almost from its inception photography has needed industrialisation for it to function and when magic is man made the agenda of its owner is always at play.
Of course this is old news. As conversations about photography they are exhausted because they are now inscribed in all photographs. When practised at its best photography is contorted by this anxiety.
