I’ve been following @ffd8ffdb for a few weeks now and finding it irresistible: raw, beautiful, and — I think you’re right to highlight this — transgressive. I’m not too concerned with the ethics here. Maybe I should be. I think what’s powerful is that cameras are always a little intrusive. Surveillance cameras, of course, all the more so. Yet the bot is neutral on that point. It’s more concerned with the beauty of what the camera sees. Which is interesting because that’s usually the part of photography we take for granted. @ffd8ffdb helps us understand all over again that cameras are not just extensions of our own vision; they can see for themselves.
