A Closer Reading of Roman Vishniac

I liked this piece and thought it was interesting but I don't think you need a closer reading to know that the photographer shows what they want to, on the basis of what's available to their camera. None of it is real, it's a 2 dimensional recording that's read and put into context by viewers. It's equal fact and construction.
