It is a multilayered visualization of the prisoner’s barracks and smokestacks. Is it a more realistic depiction than figVantage Point and Image-Worlds ure 1.3? On the surface, that would seem to be the case. I would claim that although Crawley shot this on location, the photo moves far beyond the parameters of the camp itself and invokes a generalized view of all such horrific symbols of war and death. In that sense, time is both irrelevant and at the center of the photo. The image virtualizes the past and negates a simple or direct look.
