‘The news that the camera could lie made being photographed desirable and much more popular’. Susan Sontag
Building up to my talk this Friday evening as part of the exhibition (The camera never lies...the devious art of the photographer). Sontag's statement, taken from her seminal book 'On Photography' seems a very good place to start. From photoshopping for the 'perfect' figure to the use of cropped or manipulated photographs for propaganda or satire...I am hoping to generate a lively discussion. Watch this space.
