From Jacques Rivette’s La belle noiseuse (1991).

Even if incompatible with intervention in a physical sense, using a camera is still a form of participation. Although the camera is an observation station, the act of photographing is more than passive observing. Like sexual voyeurism, it is a way of at least tacitly, often explicitly, encouraging whatever is going on to keep on happening. (Susan Sontag, “America, Seen Through Photographs, Darkly”)
