Digital Tampering


Dr. Hany Farid of Dartmouth College New Hampshire teaches computer science.  One of his essays entitled “Photo Tampering Throughout History” he reveals how photography lost its innocence a long time ago.  He has catalogued many photo montages and other fakes, from ego-flattering photos of tyrants to photos that attempt to keep up with society’s image of beauty.  The retrospective spans from 1860 to today and is worth a look.
