There are more than one reasons to distrust the evidence of our senses. Since Plato's "cave" we are merrily joggling with the veridicality of perception and we desperately seek another truth beyond the plain experience.
It is exactly by this "flaw" that photography is best served into becoming an art. This, plus the mystery of instinctively recognising a meaning without necessary understanding it, or being able to explain it.
Taking it from there, the photographer is entering a world, usually of pain, since the strive, the struggle, the contest to demonstrate that a photograph, the once faithful witness, is nowadays merely an "aspect", a logical fallacy.
"Photography is a contest between a photographer and the presumptions of approximate and habitual seeing. The contest can be held anywhere - on a city sidewalk, or in a scientific laboratory, or among the markers of ancient dead gods."
John.Szarkowski, Looking at photographs
The sidewalk (Paul and Tzen), the lab (Stela and Andreas) and the gods (Guy and Gabi)
