National Gallery of Art opens Faking It. Manipulated Photography before Photoshop

National Gallery of Art presents Faking It. Manipulated Photography before Photoshop on view from February 17 through May 5, 2013.

n the first major exhibition devoted to the history of manipulated photographs before the digital age, some 200 works will demonstrate that today’s digitally altered photographs are part of a tradition that extends back to the beginning of photography. Featuring visually captivating photographs, the exhibition will trace photographic manipulation from the 1840s through the 1980s and show that photography is—and always has been—a medium of fabricated truths and artful lies.
