Faking It: Manipulated Photography before Photoshop, MFA


Digitally altered photographs may be commonplace today, but they are nothing new. The ability to modify camera images is as old as photography itself—only the methods have changed. Tracing the practice from the 1840s through the 1980s, Faking It: Manipulated Photography before Photoshop shows that photography has always been a medium of fabricated truths and artful lies.

The captivating images in this international loan exhibition offer a new understanding of photographic history and the medium’s relationship to visual truth. LINK

The exhibit is included in the admission price and we will go on a Thursday when the admission is free.

Thanks to Paula Puffer for bringing this to my attention.
