Examining these frames now is fascinating - being a kid and taking these shots as an actual tourist, I remember using auto mode and having so much respect for the subject I’m shooting. The result is a flattened, flashy image that’s not at all flattering the heritage I got to know in my own eyes and feet walking around the palace. I think these shots show how western culture perceives history, even its own. Like an internal version of an oriental sight. As an adopted child I developed a foreign sight of culture and western culture especially in my years as a grown person. In my journey, I use the camera as a tool that completes my sensory experience to a certain extent(2), as it provides a new perception of a moment and allows it to be reviewed at resolutions that cannot be viewed by the human eye.
