What is our relation to photography today? What is our relation to our own photographs? It seems photographs have being taken to be shown rather than to be appreciated by their own creators. People have being telling to each other about their moments without actually living them (meaning they try to create a moment "happiness, action, surprise" instead of register their moments). That's why people pose as soon as they notice they will be photographed.
I also consider it worrying photographers who don't think prints are part of the photography process.
The medium also influences the meaning. The way we look at photographs or any image on a screen is not the same way we look at prints. Looking at prints we appreciate it stillness and silence. On screens, because of the medium, we have a natural tendency to expect actions among some others screen medium characteristics.
