I don't quite understand the sentence in bold. Could anyone help me?
By appearing literally to reproduce the event as it really happened, news photos suppress their selective/interpretive/ideological function. They seek a warrant in that ever pre-given, neutral structure, which is beyond quesiton, beyond interpretation: the real world.
Thanks a lot.
Re: a warrant
Well, news photos can't suppress anything. As for the highlighted sentence, it is hard to tell what "They" refers to. The sentence, frankly, doesn't really seem to say anything.
