"Suppose we take a picture of our favourite champion from today's paper — would we enjoy taking a needle and poking out the eyes? Would we feel as indifferent about it as if we poked a hole anywhere else in the paper? I do not think so. However well I know with my waking thoughts that what I do to his pictures makes no difference to my friend or hero, I still have a vague reluctance to harm it. Somewhere there remains the absurd feeling that what one does to the picture is done to the person that it represents."
Sir Ernst Gombrich
