We do not see things as they are…

New York City (1974) by Elliott Erwitt

Notes & Quotes from, Theory, Articulating Critical Practice Section 1, (2020) Dr. Ariadne Xenou, Barnsley: Open College of the Arts.

The French poet and essayist Anaïs Nin posited that “we do not see things as they are; we see them as we are.” Anaïs Nin, The Seduction of the Minotaur, (London: Swallow Press, 1961), 73.

I have made a note of this quote, as I think that it is very prophetic to both the psychology of art and of people regard each other and also of life in general.
