LILEKS PUTS HIS FINGER ON ONE OF THE SMALL BUT SIGNIFICANT CULTURAL DILEMMAS OF OUR AGE:
The main event came midway through the service, and I faced a great dilemma: in order to properly film the event I would have to ruin it. To get the good shot I’d have to block it off so the congregation couldn’t see - in effect, treating their religious ceremony like raw material for a home movie.In my experience, this happens all too often. Who cares about the actual experience as long as we can get it on film so we can watch it later? Warped!
