Benjamin describes traditional art by using the concept of "Aura".Once this term has been set under the background of the philosophical tradition of ancient Greek, it gets closer to the explicit phenomenon of the "form": presenting a comprehensive feeling, and has its "Origin""Naturality" and "Essence" characteristics of metaphysics. Traditional arts, the origin of it is traced back to the "form" invented by Aristotelian "form", means aggregating the art material to create a kind of large‐depth operational entirety."Aura" is the sense of aesthetic representation. In Benjamin’s works, the confrontation between "Aura" and the mechanical reproduction technology actually embodies the antagonism between the "naturality" of classic and modernized "history". The terms of "Aura", in a sense of phenomenology, in addition of pure visual experience, also a kind of distant, special experience. Since the visual sensation is the basis while looking at photos, it definitely determines the logic of photography art.Benjamin found the negative meaning of images replication as a political means: images used as the mouthpiece of the revolutionaries, can also be used under the control of totalitarian (revolutionaries could also be totalitarian). Audience are controlled by the language of fetishism.In the social mechanism of capitalism derived from the protestant ethic, the time cycle of the "natural production" from the agrarian age is replaced by mechanical time cycle, such as commodity production, the circulation of the factory system, the economic crisis, and replication of fashion are replaced. The mechanical clock changed the whole world instead both of day and night. This mechanical faking time cycle is nothing but the production system in a disguise of massive consumption.
