Steve McCurry and Photojournalism's Burden of Truth - Disphotic

Steve McCurry and Photojournalism's Burden of Truth - Despotic



"Revelations of photomanipulation always draws the ire of photojournalists, despite the evident irony that this is only one of the many forms of manipulation which occur in photojournalism. The same people who rabidly condemn someone like McCurry are often the ones who fail to recognize the extent to which every other part of their own process is a form of manipulation."
