small thoughts – Plato, The Republic, Book VII

Some weeks ago I read a book, “Meglio ladro che fotografo. Tutto quello che dovreste sapere sulla fotografia ma preferirete non aver mai saputo”, by an italian ’straightforward’ photographer, Ando Gilardi.

I love this book, and I was impressed how mr Gilardi commented the famous “Allegory of the Cave”: he thinks Plato is talking about photography!

Here a link to a post about the book, and here another article by Gilardi.
