The camera makes everyone a tourist in other people's reality, and eventually in one's own. --- Susan Sontag
About the image on the ground glass of the large format view camera.
The camera is vintage bellows type view camera. A glass plate would be used to make the photograph.
The photographer first focuses the subject on the ground glass. Then inserts a glass plate or in later day a single sheet of negative or transparency film - then makes the exposure.
Because there is nothing between the ground glass and camera lens - the subject is displayed to the photographer on the ground glass upside down and reverse.
