Two insights that I gained from the reading are that the human eye is the origin of perspective and the other is that cameras, images, and artwork gave us the ability to distort original perspective so that an imagine can be seen the same by everyone.
I found it interesting when the author was describing the sense of seeing and said that we must use words to explain what isn’t seen, but the sense of seeing came before words. Each person views the image differently through their own eyes. How people than interpret that image and recreate it, is what gives us perspective.
Cameras take away our ability to recreate the image we see with our own two eyes. The picture that the camera produces is its own unique perspective and the camera could have captured every image in many different ways. Cameras also give us the ability to share perspectives and images with the rest of the world.
