Kruger said: "The thing that's happening with photography today vis-a-vis computer imaging, vis-a-vis alteration, is that it no longer needs to be based on the real at all. I don't want to get into jargon let's just say that photography to me no longer pertains to the rhetoric of realism; it pertains more perhaps to the rhetoric of
the unreal rather than the real or of course the hyperreal."
Kruger in Siegel, 307-8.
