Faking It: Manipulated Photography Before Photoshop
June 2–August 25, 2013
In the first major exhibition devoted to the history of manipulated photographs before the digital age, some 200 works demonstrate that today’s digitally altered photographs are part of a tradition that extends back to the beginning of photography. Featuring visually captivating images, Faking It traces photographic manipulation from the 1840s through 1980s and shows that photography is, and always has been, a medium of fabricated truths and artful lies. This exhibition is organized by the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, and debuts there in October 2012, after which it travels to the National Gallery of Art, Washington, and then the MFAH, where it is being overseen by Yasufumi Nakamori, MFAH Associate Curator of Photography.
