Reflection on Errol Morris Photography video

I find this interesting because it shows a different way to view photography. Especially when talking about space and that majority of photographers or people in general who take pictures, usually take pictures of a large area rather than the detail of the environment. "There may be an elephant outside of the frame of the photo." The part I really like is when he started talking about how people view photos. How people tend to investigate the image instead of observing the details and/or emotion of the photograph. Which in this case can cause problems to some viewers. The example that was used was the hooded man images from the Iraqi war and the girl that got a picture taken with a corpse with a smile on her face.

There's a lot out there. Just have to see the little things that not everyone can notice. That's what stands out the most.
