Errol Morris talks to The Guardian about truth in photography

Dec 28, 2011 at 17:44 GMT

British newspaper The Guardian has published a video interview with Oscar-winning documentary maker Errol Morris about the nature of truth in photography. In it he talks about whether photography can be honest or truthful, and wonders what's outside the frame. The video is illustrated with some examples taken from his book 'Believing is Seeing: Observations on the Mysteries of Photography' and discusses the power of 'iconic photographs' and the meanings they develop, divorced from context.
