Whether this is off topic or not, i really could care less. I have been
struggling with his work in my m.a. classes on visual culture. his work
is pretty provocative, esp. "towards a philosophy of photography", and
some of the insights profound. His 'photographic universe' seems to have
many similarities with Sontag's 'image world', no?
Flusser's ultimate aim for such a philosophy is freedom, which seems a
little simplistic and naive on the surface, but is really quite profound
(in my opinion), and suggests--to me at least--a connection to the work
of Friere (e.g. Pedagogy of the Oppressed).

what do /you/ think?
