Evidently a different nature opens itself to the camera that opens to the naked eye- if only because an unconsciously penetrated space is substituted  for a space consciously explored  by man. Even if one has a general knowledge of the way people walk, one know nothing of a person’s posture during the  fractional second of a stride.

Walter Benjamin, Art in  the Age of Mechanical Reproduction, pg 236-237
