Saatchi Gallery's 2001 publication of photographs "I Am A Camera" is fascinating -- more so because of its title than the images themselves. The title comes from a 1955 play that begins with a relatively simple quote, setting off a discussion about how we observe and remember using the analogy of the camera. Looking at the photography of Jessica Craig-Martin (in Saatchi's book) and the philosophy of Henri Bergson and Vilem Flusser, further parallels are made with the photographic act and our desire to remember, suggesting the gesture of photography comes from either an unnatural or supernatural -- yet innately human -- source.
