"This is not, perhaps, as straightforward as is sounds. It meant, first and foremost, jettisoning the analogical model of the photographic frame as a window onto the world, and replacing it with the model of the box, in which the world is arranged. The photograph then becomes a composition, rather than a view. This is a funny thing, spatially: rather than allowing for the illusion of real, live, walking-around space, this analogical shift requires the reigning in of space so that it approaches a kind of flatness, or at the very least a rigorous boundedness."
