In the first major exhibition devoted to the history of manipulated photographs before the digital age, more than 150 works demonstrate how today's digitally altered photographs belong to a tradition that extends back to the beginning of photography. Featuring visually captivating photographs, the exhibition traces 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.
