work report for mon 16 june

I spent most of the day working, with quite a few distractions. As a result, I didn't get as much done as I wanted before my eyes started threatening a mutiny. But, all in all, a productive day.

I read half of this book: Words of Light: Theses on the photography of history by Eduardo Cadava. It's fantastic. He links Benjamin's philosophy of history to the philosophy of photography. On top of being really useful, it's an enjoyable read. He brings in Nietzsche too, which is making me think I'm on the right track. But he doesn't seem to go far enough. A more detailed report when I finish today.
