Madeleine dans le désert’ by Delacroix, 1845
In 1859, Charles Baudelaire writes : “And so (the multitude) thinks : "Since photography gives us all the desirable guarantees of accuracy (they believe that, fools !), art is photography." From this moment, the filthy society rushed, like a single Narcissus, to contemplate its trivial image on metal. Madness, extraordinary fanaticism took hold of all these new sun worshipers.”
