Massed Memories Of Media Manipulation

Photography lost its innocence many years ago. In as early as the 1930s, shortly after the first commercially available camera was introduced, Stalin had his enemies "air-brushed" out of photographs. With the advent of high-resolution digital cameras, powerful personal computers and sophisticated photo-editing software, the manipulation of digital images is becoming more common. Here, I have collected some examples of digital tampering in the media, politics, and the law.

Digital Tampering in the Media, Politics and Law. Just because Photoshop makes it easy doesn't mean photo-tampering doesn't have a long and rich history. From Lincoln through Stalin all the way to Brad and Angelina.
