On the turn of values in the practice of “hunting images”



This paper begins by focusing on demonstrating/ convince that between the creator of a documentary movie (called here \"the hunter of reality\"), and the ancestral hunter (who survived by hunting animals) we can draw several analogies. Starting with these analogies, I will try to understand and describe the deontological aspects of mass media, through the perspective of the deontology of hunting and implicitly trying to identify connotations in the practice of “hunting” images.
