Re: A Commentary on Photo Legitimacy

Frank Hurley was one of the first to manipulate photos at the turn of the century.  He was the photog on the imfamous shackletons antarctic expo.

but returned from that to be a WW1 photo.  he composed photos in the darkroom from a number of negs.  such as the trenches from one, bomb from another and clouds and planes from another.

The difference with those was the prints are truely one of a kind and not directly repeatable.  true art prints.

i dont really have a problem with it provided it is clear as to what it is.  i.e. not trying to pass off something as something else.   but good manipulation is an art form.  but you cant really ever make up for bad images to start with.
