Digital Truth

“Photography has always been awarded a special status for truthfully recording the world. But that doesn’t mean all photographs, all the time. Digital imaging may pose a serious challenge to traditional photographic technology—film, cameras, paper. And it may eventually affect how people view the images they see in newspapers and magazines, or even in family albums.”

This excerpt from the PBS Documentary “American Photography: A Century of Images” forms the basis for our final discussion question.

With the dramatic technology being applied to photographic images today, who can judge how truthfully a photo portrays a scene? Discuss the impact that digital manipulation of photographs does have and could potentially have on the population.
