“Real” beats virtual every time

“Real” beats virtual every time

We perhaps tend to think, especially in this Instagram and vitrual reality age that photography can be a credible surrogate for actual experience. […] We have come to rely upon it so much, and now seem to be so much in thrall to the virtual world, that we perhaps tend to forget that the “real” beats the virtural every time.
