Does photography show what's there or what's not there?

Been pondering this of late. Is photography about capturing the scene before you, the moment in time that for a split second (or 1/125th of a second, give or take a fraction of a second), everything stops long enough to get recorded for all eternity? Or conversely is it perhaps about recording what's not there, literally. Is the negative space really there? Is it that which is necessary to define a positive image? Ponder that if you will. . .
